*** Last Call - Policy Proposal 2001-4 ***
 
The three RIRs have compiled the proposal document dated December 22,
2001, version 2001-12-22 using feedback received from the RIR
communities since the publishing of the provisional IPv6 document in
1999. In the interest of maintaining IPv6 policies that are global in
scope, ARIN accepts the document with language on initial allocations
modified during APNIC 13 and ARIN IX Public Policy Meetings as interim
policy with the following specific exceptions:

	* Use the concept of license instead of lease.

	* There is no implied guarantee of routability.

The language pertaining to subsequent allocations does not have
consensus, but is not deemed imminently applicable.
