prop-119-v001: Temporary transfers

------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
Proposer:       David Hilario
                d.hila...@laruscloudservice.net

1. Problem statement
------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is currently not possible for an organisation to receive a temporary
transfer under the current policy framework. Some organisations do not
want to have address space registered as assignments or sub-allocations,
but would rather have the address space registered as "ALLOCATED PA". 


2. Objective of policy change
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Create a possibility for temporary transfers that would allow
organisations to have resources directly registered under them while
they are the custodians of these resources on the Internet. While also
guaranteeing that the offering party will under the APNIC policy be able
to recover the resources once the “lease” time has expired unless
specifically renewed.


3. Situation in other regions
------------------------------------------------------------------------

RIPE region has a concept of temporary transfers in their policies. This
concept is not found in the other RIRs for the moment.


4. Proposed policy solution
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adding to section "8.2.1. Conditions on the space to be transferred" the
following paragraphs: It must be specified if the transfer is a
permanent or temporary transfer.

A temporary transfer must have an end date, upon the end date the
resources will be transferred back to the same origin account or its
successor in the event of merger and acquisitions, unless the transfer
is specifically prolonged and confirmed by both parties.

If the source account does no longer exist and has no successor, the
space will then be returned to the origin RIR for the space. Temporary
transfers cannot be further transferred.


5. Advantages / Disadvantages
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Advantages:
Gives a greater flexibility in how LIRs manage and distribute their free
pool. Enables organisation to receive address space in the way they
intend.

Disadvantages:
These transfers would be treated and appear as regular transfers, only
APNIC the offering and receiving party will be aware of their temporary
nature. 

Organisations receiving such space, if they further assign it, must make
be ready to renumber/revoke space from their customers and services then
the lease expires, this is no different than a sub-allocation and
implies the same limitations.


6. Impact on resource holders
------------------------------------------------------------------------
none


7. References
