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

Thanks, Bill, for clarifying.

If I make the assumption that legacy and non-legacy space are almost
equivalent in terms of their reusability after their return, for
simplicity's sake it would be easier to keep the recycle times in sync,
either:
a) keep the verbiage of 2011-6 so that it includes all space and specify a
time
b) exclude legacy space in 2011-6 and leave recycle time to the discretion
of ARIN staff.
In both cases, the recycle time would be effectively the same.

If we don't specify a time period in policy 2011-6, I'm not sure if author's
concern regarding "sit[ting] idle" would be met.  Perhaps min/max time would
give the ARIN staff the flexibility but also address the author's concern.

Hi Frank,

I believe the recycle period is currently much longer, but then we
haven't run out of addresses yet. If we don't set it in policy, ARIN
staff is free to set a then-optimal recycle period.
