In regards specifically in regards to point 1. above (regardless
whether I or anyone support the policy or not, and regardless whether
it goes ahead), this is already in place and being done.

Exactly the information you specify is already being published for all
intra-RIR transfers between organisations, which does have a policy
already. Of course in all these cases, the recipient and source RIR
are always "AFRINIC", but the logging format includes this, and so
allows for inter-RIR should that ever come to pass.

This information is not in a web site, but in the following json
format log file:

You'll find this mentioned section 1.6 of the current web page on
Resource Transfers (in regards to intra-RIR), which is here: - this same section does
also say these would be listed on the web site too already, but I
don't find where. Nevertheless, the log remains the definitive source
of data here.

The format of the log file, what information it includes, is not
explicitly stated by AFRINIC, but I can tell you it follows the same
specification as ARIN

I hope this of interest :)
