I think we're close to something many of us can work with. Terry and I have been suggesting 12 months rather than 24 months and I had drafted words not unlike Geoff's but without the reference to the EC and with more detail on the stats which I was going to post. So can I suggest something like: --- When a member disposes of address space using this transfer policy the member should not be entitled to any further IPv4 allocations or assignments from APNIC for a period of 12 months or until the "final /8" assignment measures are implemented. Under exceptional circumstances a member may submit an application for further assignments or allocations earlier than this time. Any such application must be endorsed by the Executive Council or its delegate. The APNIC secretariat will monitor these exceptional requests carefully and publish comprehensive statistics on a regular basis. Without identifying any member organization, these statistics will record the numbers of requests and the outcome, the economy that the requests come from and clearly identify if any member has made more that one request under these provisions. ---I think that this would allow the community to have some reassurance that the transfer system is not being abused.
Note: I've deliberately left any mention of fees out of this as that's a task for the Executive Council.
