On the same vein, how do we feel about this rewording? Also, I again feel
that 12 months is way too long a time, especially if the organization is
already not using a part of the space.
If an organization, whether a member or non-member, ISP or end-user,
relinquishes a larger block of portable address space to ARIN, they shall be
allowed to receive a smaller block, /24 or shorter, in exchange. The
organization will not be required to justify their use of the new, smaller
block. The organization must return the block to be exchanged within 12
months. ARIN staff shall, at their discretion, determine whether the
smaller replacement block shall be a subnet of the returned block, or a
block allocated from some different range. In the case of an organization
name change for address resource records, ARIN's normal transfer policies
will apply. If the exchanged address block was maintained in the ARIN
database without maintenance fees, the replacement space shall be as well.
Likewise, if the returned block had associated maintenance fees, then the
replacement block shall also be subject to maintenance fees.
