[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-150 Reclamation Hold

The proposal originator sent the following regarding this proposal:

"I'd like to withdraw ARIN-prop-150. I will consider submitting to ASCP.

Debate on the list clearly shows that there's some who think that we
should significantly shorten the hold and others who think it should be
lengthened, and almost nobody who thinks it should stay at the present
length."

The ARIN Advisory Council will take this into consideration when they
decide what to do with this proposal.

Regards,

Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

> Proposal Version: 1
>
> Date: 13 May 2011
>
> Proposal type: new
>
> Policy term: permanent
>
> Policy statement:
>
> Add a new section to the NRPM:
> "All resources reclaimed by ARIN shall not be returned to the free pool
> or otherwise reassigned to any entity than the original registrant for a
> period of 36 months."
>
> Rationale:
> As the pressures on the system become greater with IPv4 runout, there
> will be more call for ARIN to reclaim address space. When addresses that
> are reclaimed are reused too soon, a variety of undesirable outcomes may
> result. This provides sufficient time for the resources to go unused
> prior to reassignment and/or to be re-justified by the original
> registrant, or returned to the proper holder in the case of hijackings.
> This policy could be restricted to IPv4 space, but it may be useful for
> AS numbers and has no major impact on IPv6 space (due to the large free
> pool), so it might as well apply to all.

> Timetable for implementation: immediate
