Draft Policy ARIN-2014-3
Remove 8.2 and 8.3 and 8.4 Minimum IPv4 Block Size Requirements

Date: 29 January 2014

Problem Statement:
All three transfer sections make the minimum block size allowed to be 
transferred a /24. In a post-exhaustion world, policy should allow and 
enable networks to move blocks around as they see fit, without arbitrary 
regulation of a minimum size.

Policy statement:
Remove all instances in 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4 which set a minimum transfer 
size of a /24.

Comments:
a.Timetable for implementation: Immediate
b.Anything else:
