You may have missed my last email to this list that clarified a similar 
misreading of the IPv4 transfer policy at APNIC. Rather than take up too 
much of people's time, may I direct you to the following archive of that 
previous reply:

In addition, in response to questions from Owen and Chris regarding 
allocation policies for any returned space APNIC receives after the 
final /8 policies are implemented, I can now point to a new proposal 
that seeks to clarify the situation:

     prop-088: Distribution of IPv4 addresses once the final /8 period

I hope this helps.
