Policy Proposal Name: Refinement of ISP Initial Allocation Policy

Author: Robert Seastrom
	
Proposal Version: 1.0

Submission Date: 22-Feb-2007

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:
	
In NRPM 4.2.4.3 (Initial Allocations to ISPs Policy), strike the
following sentence:

"When completing Section 7 of the ARIN ISP Network Request Template,
please keep this in mind"
	
Rationale:
	
Instructions on filling out templates properly belong in the
instructions attached to the template, not as part of a policy statement.
		
This reminder makes reference to an obsolete template and section.  ARIN
released new templates in August 2006 and changed template names, field
numbers, and sections which made both of these references obsolete.

Timetable for implementation:  Immediate
