[arin-ppml] Update for pp149 Improved Transparency for Directed Transfers

There were comments from staff requesting certain clarifications
and pointing out that the first part of 8.3.a was unnecessary in policy
and should be eliminated or moved to the rationale.

My intent is for this version to address those concerns. I welcome
comments, feedback and discussion.

ARIN-prop-149 Improved Transparency for Directed Transfers

Proposal Originator: Owen DeLong

Proposal Version: 1.3

Date: 2 June 2011

Proposal type: new

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Add the following to section 8.3 of the NRPM (where 8.3.[a..z] are
replaced with appropriate new subsection numbers when incorporated into
the NRPM)

8.3.a  ARIN shall maintain and publish a list of all prefixes
transfered under section 8.3. The list will identify the original prefix
(the block originally held by the transferor) and each subordinate prefix
(each partial block derived from that original block) transferred under
this policy and the date each prefix was transferred.

8.3.b  Upon activation of this policy, ARIN shall include in the list at
the earliest possible time all prefixes which have been transferred
under section 8.3 to date.

Rationale:

The community has a right to know which prefixes have been added or are
the result of transfer-related disaggregation. This will provide
accurate data in a central well-known location.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
