[rpd] Policy Proposal Update - Inter-RIR Resource Transfers v2

A very simple one (I'm sure there may be other examples).
A company moves from Europe to Africa (or moves from a DC in Europe to Africa). Never mind is the company or just the hosting service. May be because they have been acquired by an African company, but may be other reasons.
Without this policy they need to renumber. They may be using their own IPv4, IPv6 and AS, for example with VMs. This is today very common.
If they move from Europe to other regions, they don't need to renumber.
If we allow only transfering IPv4, then they will transfer IPv6 under the table, no doubt! It doesn't make sense.
So the reason for allow AS and IPv6 transfers is not because scarcity, but because networks may be dual-stacked, you need to support that.
By the way, thir morning I learned from Marco, the policy responsible from RIPE, that last week it was done the first ASN transfer from RIPE to APNIC. So this demonstrates, that it is a not usual case, but it happens. So why we must restrict those cases?

Can we have some use case of IPv6 transfer between RIR ?
