[rpd] Proposal Update received: AFRINIC Number Resources Transfer Policy

I consider that the main motivation to allow transfers for IPv4 is the
scarcity. In normal conditions, including a M&A the company would have
to receive resources in the new RIR and do renumbering. Some people say
that renumbering has costs, but that is part of the business and should
be accounted as part of the whole transaction.
Allowing IPv6 transfers has the potential to mess up with the way it was
distributed and is allocated among all RIRs (remember there are no
Legacy IPv6) and also would have costs for RIRs to adapt they systems in
order to allow that, a cost that would be of all members in order to
accomplish the need of just a few.
