Summarizing the "discussion":
As Philip noted, 'no proposal should meddle in a regions affairs'. There is
a clear correlation between the APNIC regions non-needs based transfer
policy and the ARIN region declining to signup for mandatory address
Minus the points of contention, if such a proposal is no longer needed,
that's probably much easier to say. If it is needed and wasn't just filler
text for trying to force another regions hand, I would argue that it might
be better to simply cut and paste the previous proposal sans the requirement
or with an insertion about non-needs based transfer.
Seems like the ball is squarely in the APNIC regions court.
