Ok, read it.

I'm on a RP-PVP server. I want to play on a PVP server. Your post doesnt really apply to me.

Not as part of the coming transfers, but probably later. Likely for a fee. If at all.

See my post in this thread back to population issues related to queue lengths. Stephen Reid stated if we where unhappy with queues to play on other servers. Same concept for low population applies. Next.

Well, you're in luck. As I've been saying since the beginning:

That's exactly what they're going to do.

Just fyi.

I am warning bioware now this won't have the intended effect they think. Forcing people to merge to a server and abandoned guilds prior to moving is a very short sighted move.

If you want to allow moves you have to let people "move" there stuff. Half a move is going to be ugly when people realize you just dumped them on another crummy empty server.

people do not like take it or leave it propositions.

If you want to be on a PvP server instead of a RP-PvP server, then the mistake is yours, not BioWare's, thus the paid transfer is a perfectly viable way to do this.

There is no reason, at all, to expect they won't allow this as a paid service.

Thank you! That's why I was asking. Err... next what?
