ARIN maintains the registry according to the policies in the
region. These are policies are developed by the community at 
large, recommended for adoption by the ARIN AC, and ratified 
by the ARIN Board.

All transfer requests which meet the policies get approved and
updated in the registry.  ARIN does turn down transfer requests 
which don't meet policy, and this potential is often understood 
and covered in proposed sale documents for IP address blocks.
