The first thing is to separate the two issues.

Cybersquatting applies equally to both registrations and transfers.
It already has a solution (ie auDRP).  If this solution needs improving
then lets review the auDRP policy.   I am not aware that cybersquatting
is a major problem for .com.au today.   

The rules for licence transfers should be the same as for registrations.
Ie the registrar would do an eligibility check (check ACN/ABN and
require a warrant for close and substantial etc).   Again if the
eligibility check needs improving - then lets review that policy.
