While a bit of diligence will be required to properly keep records of
IRR data, I think it would be okay to allow LIR's to make partial
transfers. Not doing this makes it an all-or-nothing scenario, which
sort of challenges the need for the policy itself.

I'm not sure whether we want to include any language that determines the
maximum length that can be transferred, as part of this policy, in order
to maintain some level of control on routing table pollution.
