Just in case someone finds this thread and is searching for this information, I want to make it clear that DreamHost does allow domains to be moved between accounts but only if the destination account wasn't a referred account. This means the destination account hasn't had a promo code applied to it and that no one otherwise got a referral for it.
This policy was instituted to prevent people from flipping their domains between accounts and get discounted hosting forever.
