ARIN-prop-169 Cleanup IPv6 section 6.5.7

Proposal Originator: Andrew Dul

Proposal Version: 1

Date: 2 May 2012

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Remove paragraph starting with "Organizations that received /35 IPv6
allocations under the previous" in section 6.5.7 of NRPM.

Rationale:

Problem Statement: Cleanup existing NRPM policy to make IPv6 policy
clearer and more concise.

Section 6.5.7 was modified by policy 2011-3 by adding the paragraph

"LIRs which received an allocation under previous policies which is 
smaller than what they are entitled to under this policy may receive a 
new initial allocation under this policy. If possible, ARIN will expand 
their existing allocation."

to this section.

The new paragraph that was added is believed to be inclusive of the
original paragraph's intent, thus making the current 1st paragraph of
this section redundant.

The second paragraph is believed to be inclusive of allocations that
would be granted under the first paragraph.

Timetable for implementation: As soon as practical
