Dear Fernando,
Thanks for your kick and clear answer. I'm getting your point now.

IMHO, i think that there are other reasons to transfer any kind of Internet
resources, including
ASNs (4 bytes) and IPv6. For instance, i can not understand why the authors
have not consider
my request for them to add IPv6 into their $resource pool definition.

...have you considered the cases of mergers and acquisitions ?

...ok, please also take in account the other use-cases we could have when
it comes to a cause of
$resource transfers. For me, i think it could be needed, sometimes, to
transfer an Internet
$resource even if it is not yet in scarcity. I may be wrong though :-/
