As a 'member' (and I damn well had better be one for the amount of
money I pay to 'manage' my IP space!), I suggest that ARIN spend more
time reclaiming IP addresses from classical allocation wastage than
spending time on how to change policies to further efficiency without
doing such.

Does that make sense?

The problem of IP wastage in the classical allocations is a far bigger
problem than some companies using IPs for virtual hosting.

I think that more effort should be put into reclamation of such.

No more policies on how to be more efficient until there is a way to
start reclaiming the old space as from my point of view (and the point
of view of many others who have started posting) - this is unfair to
have different standards applied.

And that is all :)
