Just small correction about term owner. There is registrar A and
registrar B. Owener (registrant) is the same for the whole process. So
Owner will get auth_info and send it to registrar B that that will call
'transfer_domain domain_name auth_info', there is no other options.
Domain is transferred and auth_info is reset to a new value.

Since there is not registry "cost" associated with transfer, there is
no possibility to charge transfers. Expiration date is not changed
during transfer so registry has got already paid for this domain until
expiration date.
