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

I also agree that this is a clever way of getting a foot in the door to
Inter-RIR Resource Transfers - and am happy to accept the proposal and
hope it goes forwards. Of course - I'd like to see the ability to
transfer any resources... (Non-Legacy IPv4, ASN and IPv6 as well).

Perhaps one day I'll want to migrate from where I live to another place
- and keep what I have. If I move (for example) to Europe, it would make
sense to move from AfriNIC to RIPE. I'd like the freedom to do that and
keep all my connections in place without any renumbering.

Strategically, what it does give, is the ability to import IPv4
resources in to AfriNIC from other RIR's - and I believe we will need
that flexibility.
