[ppml] Policy Proposal 2002-6 reworded?

The ARIN BoT has asked the AC to provide crisp and unambiguous policy

While, as I have said, I have sympathy for those with 'extraordinary'
circumstances which might cause them to have trouble meeting the
requirements for renumbering and would thus cause them to petition for more
time from ARIN.

This places and extraordinary burden on ARIN staff as well....

If we MUST put this extension justification language in then I suggest we
MUST provide some representative guidance on what would qualify for
justification.......much as the examples of Internet Infrastructure
associated with the micro allocations policy.....

I urge that we do not incorporate such language, but leave to the
organization the understanding that they need to make extraordinary
preparation for renumbering if they have extraordinary renumbering
circumstances.... and wish to take advantage of this policy.

I like Alex's sentence, and this wording of the policy.

 I would modify this to read:

 "Exchange blocks larger than /20 must be renumbered within 12 months;
 others must be renumbered within 6 months unless organization can
 a timeframe extension"
