Bravo Notes on Inter-Registrar Transfer

ICANN Transfer Policy (Effective as of 1 December 2016)
document at:
excerpt below:
II. Inter-Registrant Transfer (Change of Registrant)
c. Change of Registrant Process

1.2 The Registrar must impose a 60-day inter-registrar transfer lock following a Change of Registrant, provided, however, that the Registrar may allow the Registered Name Holder to opt out of the 60-day inter-registrar transfer lock
prior to any Change of Registrant request.
There are many other similar references to such opt-out throughout the entire document. I am convinced that ICANN has explicitly deemed that such override (of the hold imposed) is at discretion of registrar.
