> Prior to any allocation or assignment that will cause ARIN's total

> of a /8, ARIN will first ensure that dedicated resources equivalent to a
> /10 are available from the remainder of the available resources. These

> 4.2.2.4.1 Restrictions
>
> ARIN may require qualifying organizations to demonstrate that they were
> not created solely to receive resources from these dedicated resources.
>
> 4.2.2.4.2 Replenishment
>
> ARIN will replenish the available dedicated resources, up to the total
> of a /10 of available resources, whenever there are sufficient available
> resources, with no more than 25% of the available resources going for
> this purpose.
>
> 4.2.2.4.3 Reporting
>
> ARIN will keep numbers and statistics available as to the total size of
> the dedicated resources, allocated and unallocated and to how many
> members allocations were made, available annually.
>
> 4.2.2.4.4 Retirement
>
> ARIN will retire this section whenever two full calendar years go by

> creation.
>
> Rationale:
>
> I believe it is important to ensure access to new entities to the IPv4
> resources ARIN maintains stewardship over. Without a policy like this
> one, they are unlikely to have any alternative other then to use PA
> space or utilize transfers that may be prohibitively burdensome.
>
> I also believe it is important to ARIN to be an essential and relevant
> entity to the process of getting these new ISP's to their footing with
> IPv4 resources.
>
> ARIN informal numbers:
>
> Total first time IPv4 allocations to ISPs approved in 2011:  318
> Total IPv4 space approved for:     2,812 /24s
>
> Total additional IPv4 allocations to ISPs in 2011:  497 ISP accounts
> received at least one additional IPv4 allocation.
> Total IPv4 space approved for:   70,569 /24s
>
> This suggests that maintaining resources for these new ISPs can ensure a
> steady influx of new members who would otherwise have much more limited
> options, and that a /10 can provide an estimated 4 years of access to
> these resources.
>
> This same /10 would last for additional allocations less than a year.
>
> Timetable for implementation: Before ARIN has less than a /8 in
> its free pool.
