The prior policy change failed to remove all references to the table,
and we should have caught that during the review process.  Staff will 
prepare an editorial correction to the NRPM to address this oversight 
for the ARIN AC's consideration. There is precedent for the ARIN Board 
approving corrections to the NRPM with the ARIN AC's concurrence that
the change is purely editorial in nature, e.g. NRPM 2009.4 (Sept 2009).  
If the AC feels that the change is not editorial in nature, then it is 
likely to result in a new policy proposal in the policy development 
process.
