[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2011-6: Returned IPv4 Addresses

Does the existing "RSA-covered address recovery" include the 30-day window?
In your previous comment I know you wanted to leave that timeframe to the
discretion of ARIN staff, but the timeframe is one reason why we may want to
include RSA-covered addresses in 2011-6.

Four suggestions:

4) Put "legacy" back in. RSA-covered address recovery already operates
by recyling the addresses into ARIN's pool and assigning or allocating
them to ARIN registrants. Codifying it in policy is redundant and
serves to muddy the issue this proposal attempts to address: that we
want ARIN to apply the same process to recovered legacy addresses.
