ARIN-prop-157 Section 8.3 Simplification

Proposal Originator: Martin Hannigan

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 21 SEP 2011

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Number resources within the ARIN region may be released to ARIN by an 
authorized resource holder for transfer to a qualified and specified 
recipient.

Rationale:

The original text was overly complex and imprecise. The modified 
language has been reduced to be clear with respect to allowing specified 
transfers of "number resources". The definition of "number resources" is 
any IPv4 address or addresses, IPV6 address or addresses or a 2 byte or 
4 byte ASN individually or collectively.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
