I think anyone who can make a good, polite, reasoned argument should contact him. I plan to contact him myself, just trying to draft a reply without expletives.
As for requiring a license to transfer, I equate that as being registration. If it isn't at first, it will be soon enough. And you don't need a license to transfer a car, you need one to drive it on public roads - and the registration of cars is ostensibly about paying taxes to support those roads.
