In the past, when we have helped organisations transfer a
registration from the ARIN database to the RIPE database, 
we have been quite aware that the registrations pre-date the 
current policies. In most cases organisations have agreed to 
follow the current registration policies. However, it is worth 
bearing in mind that the transfers that have happened up until 
now were mostly for organisations who were concerned over 
registration data.

It's the RIR communities that set the policies - not the RIRs.
