I stand to support the policy on proposal of IPV4 inter-RIR legacy
resources transfer.

We're running out of IPV4 resources and the Regional Internet Registries
(RIRs) have started to run out of of IPV4 resources as well. IPv4 inter-RIR
legacy resources from and to other regions will offer a realistic solution
to the problem of reclaiming the significant amount of unused IPV4
resources and allocating them to their most efficient users. The transfer
will be subject to the need to main route aggregation and allow resources
not in used in one region to be transferred to a region where it is needed.

Preventing IPv4 Inter-RIR Legacy Resource Transfers would only push the
demand  and supply pressures surrounding the scarcity of resources into
different channel such as the holder of this unused resources will do
everything within their power for continued possession of this resources
for purpose of black market, increase their value in an acquisition.

Inter-RIR Legacy would definitely allows organization willing to release
address resources to benefit monetarily by selling them to another region
who wants them subject to the record keeping requirements and regulation of
inter regional legacy instead of being hijacked or use without

It is very obvious that the risk associated with this will be very small
when compare to the potential benefit and this will also reinforce
effectiveness of the inter Regional Internet Address Registries in global
internet governance.
