[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-136 Services Opt-out Allowed for Unaffiliated Address Blocks

I just read these documents, and I see that they create a relationship for the development of global policy.  I don't see where they grant regulatory authority to any RIR - perhaps you can clarify with something more than your opinion?

"The NRO shall fulfill the role, responsibilities and functions of the ASO as defined
within the ICANN Bylaws." <http://www.icann.org/en/aso/aso-mou-29oct04.htm>

Per the ICANN Bylaws, this includes advising the Board "with respect to policy issues
relating to the operation, assignment, and management of Internet addresses."
The Board accepted ICP-2 < http://www.icann.org/en/icp/icp-2.htm> as a statement
of policy, with the NRO fulfilling ICANN's duties of coordination of number resources
and in particular the stable and secure operation of the Internet's number identifier
systems.

FYI,
/John
