During the ARIN XXIII policy discussion several individuals
described ideas similar to RIPE policy proposal 2009-03
This policy adapts the same idea into an ARIN policy for
discussion in this region.
From the RIPE proposal:
] This is a proposal to gradually reduce the allocation and assignment
] periods in step with the expected life time of the IPv4 unallocated
] pool in order to address the perception of unfairness once the pool
] has run out.
] The proposal is not intended to stretch the lifetime of the
] unallocated pool.
] The proposal is independent of other proposals to reserve address
] space for transition purposes and/or new entrants. It can be
] implemented independently of these.
9. Timetable for implementation: Immediate
