To follow up on my question during the presentation today, as part of ARIN
47; (text of the questions has been corrected below)

If a Legacy holder was willing to accelerate their true-up, is ARIN willing
to negotiate on this issue, without jumping straight to the final result in
one year?

To expand a bit, I would like to suggest ARIN offer an option for an
accelerated true-up, maybe over something like 5 - 10 years instead of 1
year, in the case of direct conversion, or 300+ years, that the current $25
a year increase represents for a Large Catagory Legacy Holder.

In the case of the Large Catagory Legacy Holder example above, a 300+ year
true-up is kind of laughable and not very equitable in one direction, but
neither is more than a 5000% increase in one year a
very equitable alternative.
