yep, i agree.

i recently was the source of a pile of transfers from /24's to a /16,
both inside ARIN, as well as a couple out of ARIN into RIPE.

also did some with brokers (, as well as direct deals.

as long as all the documentation is straight, the process seems to move along

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather
to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
