Policy Proposal 2007-13
Removal of ISP Immediate Need from End-User

Author: Rob Seastrom, David Williamson, Owen DeLong

Proposal Version: 0.1

Submission Date: 4/24/07

Proposal type: delete

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

   Delete section 4.3.4, which reads:

   4.3.4. Additional considerations

   End-users may qualify for address space under other policies such as
Immediate need [4.2.1.6] or Micro-allocation [4.4].

   from the NRPM.

Rationale:

   As discussed at ARIN XIX, section 4.3.4 creates a conflict
with section 4.2.1.6 in that section 4.2.1.6 specifically excludes
end users while section 4.3.4 is specifically for end users.

   Prior to the development of the multihoming policy for end
users, the immediate need policy was required in order to support
end users being able to get address space under some circumstances.
The "immediate need" title is a misnomer as it is more an issue of
"initial need without prior address utilization" than "immediate
need".  Such initial needs for end users are now addressed best
through the multihoming policy.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
