Argh. Cell phone autocorrected me into the opposite of my intent.
Legacy should be NO different. Requirements for legacy should be identical.
The problem with allowing non-contracted parties to be the source of a transfer becomes one of how you verify or authenticate said party and what your recourse is in the event of fraud.
What if person Q pretends to be authorized to sell block X which is legacy to organization Z, but it later turns out that organization Z doesn't know Q and there's no contract between anyone except APNIC and the transfer recipient R?
Does R sue Q? X? Z? APNIC? Or all of the above? What happens to R? What happens to Z? What happens to the registry records when this comes to light?
