Allow IPv4 PI transfer

2014-02: According to “IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region”, it is not possible to transfer Provider Independent (PI) IP space. There is, however, a lot of IPv4 PI space that was assigned over the past years and there is currently a market for this space as well. Although it isn’t possible to actually hand-over the IP space in the RIPE Registry, some people are actually “selling ownership via side-letters” or other means. This poses a risk for the buyer (new users) and as the registry isn’t correctly maintained, the world is looking at incorrect/stale/false data in the registry.
