It is not entirely clear to me what the issue of inter-RIR ASN transfers
has to do with the topic at hand. However, there is a lively discussion
on ARIN PPML about Inter-RIR ASN transfers, you too can participate:

I'm happy to discuss "legitimate use cases", provided they exist, and

To me it is quite significant that I'm not aware of operational issues
related to the policies of the APNIC IRR, and RIPE is moving towards
that same model.
