So, to cut to the chase:

1)  IP Address space conservation was implemented wrt to virtual domains 
without ensuring that appropriate solutions were available for the related 


2)  ARIN members were not given sufficient time to apply the appropriate 
solutions that would satisfy all concerns prior to the formal broadcast 
notifying members that an existing policy would be enforced where it had 
previously been allowed in the justification process.

That about sum it up?
