I see your point, but I really think if an organization receive addresses from AFRINIC (in about one year from now, as this policy will not get implemented earlier), as you said:
1) We don't have the crystal ball, but we know that there will not be more addresses.
2) If there are addresses, it doesn't make sense that this organization receives more addresses from AFRINIC if they have transferred them.
3) If they had made a mistake with their plans, they did money with the transfer, that money now can be used to get more addresses with a new transfer (now they are destination, not the source).
I think it is fair and good as an additional insurance for those willing to transfer to seriously think twice. It clearly limits speculative out-going transfers.

I'm not sure I'd agree with this. A single year in Internet terms is
like 5 years in other businesses and a lot can change. Rather change the
restriction to something like, if you do an IPv4 transfer - you have to
wait a year before requesting more IPv4.
*NEW* You are then restricted from ever transferring those new IPv4
(which will probably be small, /20's or smaller).
*OR* simply state that IPv4 addresses from the last block can never be
I personally think reality will catch up and there won't be any more
addresses to obtain from the Registry but I don't have a crystal ball.
