Joly - 
  Requests are processed according the transfer policies
  <https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html#eight>.  If a 
  request doesn't meet the transfer policy (e.g. the sale
  is not to an actual entity that has an operational need
  for address space or it is more space than needed for the
  next twelve months), then it will be denied.  
  If you think that ARIN should operate under different 
  policies in the management of the IP address space in
  the region, you can submit a policy proposal to change
  the policy as desired:
