4) that the OWNER can transfer OWNERSHIP to another player.

I actually disagree with this... the current situation sucks, but in other cases being able to take mayorship is important. A city belongs to all its members, not just the creator. Everyone helps invest, grow, recruit, earn fame/jewels, etc. and in the case of an inactive or inadequate mayor they shouldn't be stuck with them leading the city... even big cities have run into cases where the mayor suddenly disappears and the group risks crumbling if they don't grab the crown. (And in cases where the mayor is fully inactive it's recommended to kick them, even if they were founder, so new votes don't default to them.)
Of course, preventing a city from inviting a bunch of players at once (ie, merger), only letting the mayor invite, or not letting new members place their vote right away would also get in the way of normal, non-hostile city things so I'm not sure there's any easy solutions around. :\

Last I saw there were 3 remaining, and one was Bloop's account so I assume the city still exists. They poofed off the leaderboard after 2 weeks inactive, and the city is private so a takeover would be unlikely without help. We had been watching to see how long they hung on the rankings. ^^;
