[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2011-1 - Inter-RIR Transfers - Shepherd's Inquiry

Hello,

Please provide you immediate, concise feeback which states your position
for or against the DP as changed from its earlier version and any
reasoning you may wish to provide.

I am proposing that the original Draft Policy 2011-1: Globally
Coordinated Transfer Policy
<https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2011_1.html>  ....

Be renamed.... Draft Policy 2011-1: Inter-RIR Transfers...

and that the DP text be modified to the following to accommodate the
many insights and concerns shared with me and the AC by members of the
community and the AC itself.

"Address resources may be transferred.... in or out of the ARIN region
to those who demonstrate need and plan to deploy them for a networking
purpose within 3 months. Such transfers will take place between RIRs who
share compatible, needs-based policies on behalf of entities agreeing to
the transfer and which otherwise meet both RIR's policies. Transferred
resources will become part of the resource holdings of the recipient RIR
unless otherwise agreed by both RIRs."

Reasoning....It is explicit about..

in or out of region,
that transfers are between RIRs that support needs-based policies, 
that RIRs have to agree, 
that parties meet all of both RIR policies 
that it is needs based, and the need is for a networking purpose, 
that the receiving RIR is entitled to the addresses

I think all these details were raised as objections at one time or
another...so it seems best to waste a few more words to be explicit.

It is not explicit about...
block sizes
utilization of prior allocations, assignments or transfers
RFC 2050
subsequent transfers

Nor should it be, IMO

Thank you for your continuing involvement in the ARIN Policy Development
Process.

Best,

Bill Darte
Primary Shepherd DP 2011-1
