Speaking in support, in a personal capacity.

More generally speaking, this is one place where I’d argue for more permissive policy, mainly towards the goal of consistent set of policies for all resources. While I can’t see a technical need at this point for an IPv6 or 32-bit ASN transfer policy, I can see the potential for wanting to get out in front of a policy should it ever arise. I could also see the potential for non-technical needs for those types of transfers, such as vanity prefixes/ASNs (a debatable practice in its own right, but I’m sure there would be demand), or other potential drivers that none of us have considered to date.

Thanks,

-C
