[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2009-7: Open Access To IPv6 - Last Call

The ARIN Advisory Council (AC) met on 23 October 2009 and decided to
send a revised version of the following draft policy to last call:

    Draft Policy 2009-7: Open Access To IPv6

The AC met in accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process which
requires the AC to meet within 30 days of the conclusion of the Public
Policy Meeting to make decisions about the draft policies that had been
presented. The AC revised the draft. The draft policy is now limited to
removing the IPv6 routing requirement from current policy. It does not
change the initial IPv6 allocation criteria. However, the AC stated they
intend to continue to work on that issue.

Feedback is encouraged during this last call period. All comments should
be provided to the Public Policy Mailing List. This last call will
expire on 13 November 2009. After last call the AC will conduct their
last call review.

The draft policy text is below and available at:

Draft Policy 2009-7
Open Access To IPv6

Version/Date: 28 October 2009

Policy statement:

Remove “by advertising that connectivity through its single aggregated
address allocation” from article 3 of section 6.5.1.1

Rationale:

Removing the requirement for a single aggregate announcement benefits
the NRPM itself, as it has been decided by the community that it should
not contain routing advice.

Timetable for implementation: immediately upon BoT ratification
