ARIN-prop-167 Removal of Renumbering Requirement for Small Multihomers

Proposal Originator: Kevin Blumberg

Proposal Version: 1

Date: 30 April 2012

Proposal type: remove

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Remove the entire subsection 4.3.6.2 "Additional Assignments for Small 
Multihomers".

Rationale:

The policy has had the unintended effect of freezing small multi homed 
end users from being able to return to ARIN for additional assignments. 
The requirement to renumber out of space is unique and is applying an 
undue burden of renumbering what would be an organization's core 
infrastructure.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
