Hi Dean and all,
Transfer is essentially re-delegation process and the IPv4 policy is
quite specific in delegation size based on 1 year need:
"Based on these factors, APNIC and NIRs will delegate address space to
meet the LIR's estimated needs for a period up to one year up to the
maximum allowed delegation under Section 3. If APNIC or the NIR make a
delegation based on a period of less than one year, then they must
inform the LIR of the length of the period and the reasons for selecting
I don't see ways to accommodate prop-104 need without changing the
policy. The needs based transfer evaluation introduced by prop-096 must
have boundaries. Otherwise, as per Adam's latest post to the list,
people may come with a 15 year or 100 year planning window that would be
hard to decline.
