Yes, I meant Proposal 133 rather than 113.

 Did you mean to say you were opposed to proposal 133?

> 
> Proposal Version: 1
> 
> Date: 13 February 2011
> 
> Proposal type: New
> 
> Policy term: Permanent
> 
> Policy statement:
> 
> Add the following to the NRPM:
> 
> 13.  Unaffiliated Address Blocks
> 
> 13.1. No Volunteer Services
> 
> Except in the specific circumstances described by this 
> policy, ARIN will not provide any services for any 
> organization and/or address block. This includes without 
> limitation all directory services, reverse mapping services, 
> and future services that may be provided to the community.
> 
> 13.1.1.  Requested Services
> 
> In the event that an organization explicitly requests 
> registry services from ARIN for one or more specified address 
> blocks, ARIN may provide the requested services, subsequent 
> to execution of a service contract, for those address blocks. 
> This includes without limitation all directory services, 
> reverse mapping services, and future services that may be 
> provided to the community.
> 
> All address blocks that are assigned or allocated by ARIN 
> under a valid RSA, as well as specific address blocks that 
> are included under a Legacy RSA with the legitimate validated 
> address holder, are deemed to have services requested for them.
> 
> An organization requesting registry services for one or more 
> specified address blocks, that also holds additional address 
> blocks not specified in their request, is not obligated to 
> receive registry services for those additional address blocks 
> and those blocks are not deemed to have services requested for them.
> 
> 13.1.2. Directory Placeholders
> 
> For any address blocks, for which there are not fully 
> executed ARIN service contracts, ARIN will create generic 
> placeholder entries in the ARIN Whois directory.  These 
> placeholder entries will not specify organizational details, 
> but will indicate that the entry represents a non-member resource.
> 
> When applicable, each non-member resource placeholder will 
> include a reference and/or RWhois referral to the 
> authoritative directory service for that block, or the 
> directory service operated by the IANA, or by another 
> organization in the event that IANA has delegated their 
> directory service responsibility to that organization.  This 
> does not apply to placeholders that represent an unassigned 
> and unallocated address block delegated to ARIN by the IANA.
> 
> 13.2. Recognition of Legitimate Address Holders
> 
> ARIN will use the following criteria in order to determine 
> whether an organization is the legitimate address holder for 
> a given IP address block.
> 
> 13.2.1. Original Allocation Record
> 
> The original allocation records, such as those documented in 
> RFC 1166 issued in July of 1990 or the InterNIC database 
> received by ARIN from Network Solutions in December of 1997, 
> will be used as dispositive proof, absent any contrary 
> documentation such as those specified in section 13.2.4 
> below, in determining whether an organization is the 
> legitimate address holder.
> 
> 13.2.2 IANA Records of Legitimate Address Holders
> 
> In the event that the IANA has historical records, and/or 
> current records, showing the assignment or allocation of a 
> given IP address block to a specific organization, those 
> records will be used as proof, absent any contrary 
> documentation, in determining whether an organization is the 
> legitimate address holder.
> 
> Further, in the event that this evidence conflicts with any 
> evidence from the original allocation records, or any 
> contrary documentation such as those specified in section 
> 13.2.4 below, the evidence from the original allocation 
> record will take precedence.
> 
> 13.2.3. Records Maintained on Behalf of the IANA
> 
> In the event that the IANA has delegated responsibility for 
> the management of an address block to another organization, 
> including ARIN or any other RIR, and that organization has 
> historical and/or current records showing the assignment or 
> allocation of a given IP address block to a specific 
> organization, those records will be used as evidence in 
> determining whether an organization is the legitimate address holder.
> 
> Further, in the event that this evidence conflicts with any 
> evidence from the original allocation records, or any 
> contrary documentation such as those specified in section 
> 13.2.4 below, the evidence from the original allocation 
> record will take precedence.
> 
> 13.2.4. Formal Records Clarifying the Chain of Custody
> 
> In the event that formal records, such as public records or 
> other formal documents which can be authenticated or verified 
> to include legal, financial, and other organizational 
> documentation, are provided to ARIN by an organization 
> seeking recognition of their status as the legitimate address 
> holder, then ARIN will consider the impact of these records 
> as potentially updating any evidence that may exist.  If 
> these records clearly document the assignment or allocation 
> of a given IP address block to a specific organization by 
> direct assignment, and/or organizational transitions such as 
> mergers, acquisitions, business unit restructuring, asset 
> transfers, name changes, and so forth, absent definitive 
> documentation to the contrary, then these records will 
> determine whether an organization is the legitimate address holder.
> 
> 13.3.  Permitted Updates to Directory Services for 
> Unaffiliated Address Blocks
> 
> Any organization that legitimately holds an address block, as 
> defined by section 13.2 of this policy, may request the 
> removal or modification of existing directory placeholders 
> representing that address block.
> 
> Valid requests for modification of placeholder entries are 
> limited to references and/or RWhois referrals to 
> authoritative directory services, such as directory services 
> operated by or on behalf of the IANA, another address 
> registry, or the address holder.  In the event that such a 
> request is received, ARIN may choose to either remove the 
> placeholder entry or update it per the request.
> 
> 
> Rationale:
> 
> Policy Background:
> 
> This policy attempts to clarify the relationship that ARIN 
> has with legacy address holders.
> 
> Specifically, this policy recognizes that absent an agreement 
> such as the RSA or LRSA there is no formal relationship with 
> legacy address holders.  At present, however, ARIN continues 
> to provide services to these organizations.  This is done 
> without compensation and potentially in opposition to the 
> legacy address holders' wishes.  As a result of this behavior 
> ARIN has created an illusion of implied authority that 
> exposes ARIN to unacceptable levels of liability, is 
> hindering the development of an open address market (driving 
> it "underground"), and is putting the operational stability 
> of the Internet at risk.  As new services such as RPKI are 
> contemplated this situation becomes even more critical.
> 
> This policy would require positive affirmation from any 
> legacy address holder that wishes to receive registry 
> services, moving to an "opt-in"
> approach.  In the event that a legacy address holder does not 
> opt-in to receive registry services, ARIN is limited to 
> providing no more than a pointer (such as a RWhois referral) 
> to an authoritative directory service for that holder's 
> legacy address blocks.  Pointers to other providers of 
> directory services for addresses managed by those other 
> providers continue to be permitted.
> 
> Policy Structure:
> 
> This policy introduces a new section to the NRPM, numbered section 13.
> Within this new section, there are three sub-sections.
> 
> Sub-section 13.1 introduces policy that limits ARIN to 
> providing services on an opt-in basis.  It does make clear in 
> 13.1.1 that services provided as part of a RSA or LRSA are 
> automatically considered opted-in.
>  With 13.1.2 it allows ARIN to create placeholders in the 
> Whois database for blocks managed by other RIRs as well as 
> for blocks managed (but unassigned/unallocated) by ARIN.
> 
> Sub-section 13.2 introduces policy that specifies how ARIN 
> will go about determining who a "legitimate" address holder 
> is.  It is similar to current procedure with 13.2.2 and 
> 13.2.3, which specify the use of IANA and RIR records.  It 
> expands on the current procedures with 13.2.4, allowing 
> organizations to provide legal documentation of 
> organizational changes and/or the transfer of custody of a 
> legacy address block.
> 
> Sub-section 13.3 introduces policy enabling legitimate 
> address holders to request a very limited update to any Whois 
> placeholders that might exist for their legacy address block, 
> so that the Whois will refer queries to the authoritative 
> directory service.  It is expected that ARIN will charge a 
> fee for this update, but not require an ongoing services 
> agreement.  ARIN is given the option of deleting placeholders instead.
