While I would strongly support the development of an inter-RIR transfer policy (and/or cleanup of the current intra-RIR transfer policy), I don't think this proposal is sufficiently clear and in line with other current policy in the region to work. In other words, I oppose this proposal. (just to be clear for the WG-chairs who are keeping count) What I would like to see instead is a simple framework, outlining the two options: 1) transferring TO the RIPE NCC service region 2) transferring FROM the RIPE NCC service region that clearly define which parts of the regular transfer policy would apply to such a transaction. With that, we keep all the rules about transfers in one place. 1) would be something like 'We welcome any address space transferred to the RIPE NCC service region as long as transferring it is in line with policies at the originating region and the entity receiving the space qualifies as outlined in the policy for address transfers within the service region' 2) would be something like 'You can transfer any address space to outside the RIPE NCC service region as long as transferring it is in line with policies at the receiving region and the address space qualifies for transfer as outlined in the policy for address transfers within the service region' Finally,if you then feel unhappy with the limitations in the current transfer policy, I would very much like to invite anyone to introduce a policy proposal to remove them.
