ARIN-prop-256: Modify 8.3 and 8.4 for Clarity

Date: 15 August 2018

Proposal Originator: Mike Burns

Problem Statement:

Language in 8.3 and 8.4 refers to "M&A transfers" without defining that term, which does not accurately describe the intention of the community. For example, a "reorganization" is handled under section 8.2, but a "reorganization" is not part of the common understanding of the term "M&A" . We have had clients become concerned about this issue, when they come to market to sell addresses but see that there might be a waiting period due to a recent 8.2 transfer.

Policy Statement:

Replace the term "M&A" with the term "8.2" in 8.3 and 8.4.


Improves clarity
