However there are transfers and there are transfers. A formal transfer according to the policy is of course bound by those needs-based prerequisites. Address blocks sometimes need to be moved between LIRs without invoking that: no back-room deals or cheating either. You just don't call those moves a transfer, even though that's the end result. Suppose a hypothetical IXP sells off its web hosting business. It keeps some IP addresses for itself and the rest go with the web hosting. The web customers can't be renumbered but they move to another company which might or might not be an existing LIR in the same service region. What sort of "needs-based address transfer" is that? This is a rhetorical question BTW.
