Noted with thanks :-)

It seems as a tool which could reduce:

1| disagreements with resource holders, not
recognising the validity of their current documented
 justification?
2| voluntary INR's reservations?
3| anything else?


John, please, what could be the practical usecases
of this tool?

In other words: in what is it actually useful to ARIN?

Sure! no need...given that ARIN appears to have
sufficient flexibility [1] to deal with non compliance;
 regarding percentage of INRs utilization...

"If your organization acquired assets (such as
customers and equipment) from another
organization via an acquisition or merger, and those
 assets are using IP addresses and/or ASNs that
are directly registered through ARIN, you may
request a transfer of those resources. ARIN will
proceed with processing transfer requests even if
the number resources of the combined
organizations exceed what can be justified under
current ARIN policy as defined in NRPM Section
8.5. In that event, *ARIN will work with the resource
holder(s)* to *transfer the extra number resources*
to other organization(s) or *accept a voluntary
return* of the *extra number resources* to ARIN."

...i've quoted something about M&A, but it applies
to other types of INR transfers in similar manners.

Many thanks for these insightful clarifications :-)
...once more.
