Policy Proposal Name: Removal of Ipv6 Operational Information from NRPM
Proposal Version: Version 0
Submission Date: 8 February 2007
Proposal type: Modify
Policy term: Permanent
The following parts of Section 126.96.36.199 should be removed from the
Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM).
NRPM Section 188.8.131.52 states:
The following guidelines may be useful (but they are only
* /64 when it is known that one and only one subnet is needed
* /56 for small sites, those expected to need only a few subnets
over the next 5 years.
* /48 for larger sites
Discussions in recent public policy meetings, as well as in Advisory
Council meetings, have led to the consensus that operational
information, such as these IPv6 guidelines, should be removed from the
NRPM. This section is a clear example of text not directly related to
ARIN policy and so it is proposed that it should be removed.
Timetable for implementation: Immediate
