Wording of the Virtual Webhosting Standards Policy

Okay I am a little more clear regarding what is going on here now.  Here is
the UUNET proposal:
Organizations providing web hosting services must document efficient
utilization of existing IPv4 assignments.  Where possible, name-based
virtual hosting should be provided using HTTP1.1-host headers.  If such
name-based virtual hosting is not possible, documentation explaining why
it is not possible should be provided in the application.

Here are my comments:
I think that this is a succint, clear, to the point statement, but I am not
sure that I like 'organizations providing web hosting services'.  Basically,
ALL organizations need to show efficient use of any IPv4 subnet space.  How
about just 'organizations'?

Since ARIN VII, we have had *three* distinct policy proposals published on
this list (one from Exodus, one from UUNET, and one from Global Crossing),
with ancillary commentary from myself on UUNET's policy proposal and from
Kevin on my policy proposal.

Other than additional commentary from those lurking out there, what else
do you want? The thread so far seems, in my opinion, quite useful as an
outgrowth of a year's-worth of discussion to-date.
