It can't be transfered. The netblock is allocated to who ARIN says it 
is. If they do decide to do recalls, just posting the block in this 
forum is enough to initiate a utilization check. Besides, why would 
someone pay for something they can get for free? Show need, and it is 
given. I'm sure someone would love a /16 to brag about, but good luck 
getting ARIN to alter who owns it.
