The actual statement proposed does not limit transfers to 16 bit ASN's.

Transfer of IPv6 resources have been discussed before, and most felt it was not desirable since one of the goals of IPv6 was to reduce aggregation in routing tables. Allowing transfers would start us down the path of what IPv4 is today. Also, unlike IPv4, IPv6 has means built in to renumber many networks without a hard cutover by advertising the new network, and deprecating the old, without having to have a hard cut over. Also, using numbering space from your upstream does do much to make and keep those routing tables smaller.

Last time I checked, the IPv6 DFZ was only about 20% of the size of the IPv4 DFZ.

Query: why IPv4 only?

I'd support transferability of IPv6 resources too - but that is a
different topic and worthy of its own thread.

If you are restricting transfers to the scarce resource, why say ASNs,
not 16-bit ASNs?

Why restrict it to 16-bit ASNs? What is the benefit of such a
restriction?

It seems somewhat discriminatory that older companies (who due to
historical reasons are more likely to have a 16-bit ASN) can transfer
their ASN to another RIR, while newcomers (more likely to have a 32-bit
ASN) are denied to opportunity to transfer their ASN.

I support transferability of all ASNs, small or large.

Kind regards,

Job
