Chris,

No more than ARIN's core missing is to set Internet routing policy.

Facilitating communication between end-user networks is not number
resource policy. I have no particular objection to expanding ARIN's
core mission to include it. I'd probably even vote for doing so. But
until then I think discussion of SWIP policy predicated on factors
other than resource justification is out of order.

Regards,
Bill Herrin
