Hi Fernando,

IPv4 transfers are not a global policy either, or if they've become one
they didn't start that way. They started as individual RIRs declaring the
conditions under which they would offer or accept transfers with other
RIRs. Where both RIRs' conditions are met, the transfer can happen.

It's not obvious to me why we'd need to do anything more coordinated here.
