A: When a member disposes of address space using this transfer policy the member should not be entitled to any further IPv4 allocations or assigments from APNIC for a period of 24 months. or B: Any address that will be transfered must be held by the transfering party for at least 12 months, regardless of how the address was obtained.

Under option B, APNIC would be attempting to influence the behavior of members prior and during a proposed transfer process. I would suggest that this may be in-effectual and may result in members not notifying APNIC when a transfer has occurred.
I concur, limiting the receiving party's ability to do something with the resource will likely cause them to still do that something but just not tell anyone, something we want to avoid.
My vote is for option A - make people think hard before they dispose of resources.
