It's pretty simple: you can write a contract to transfer IP
addresses in accordance with policy, and we are now seeing
most parties come to us in advance either to prequalify or
make the sale conditional on approval.

No, Valdis, the ARIN position is "if we wanted Curran to have a sense of humor,
we'd have issued him one".
