[ppml] ARIN Policy Proposal 2002-9 (fwd)

Correct.   "Forced Revocation" of pre ARIN space would cause some
legal issues, and thus cost ARIN substantial amounts of money in legal
I personally would rather see ARIN spending money on things that build,
of defending or breaking things.

I do not believe that ARIN has been given the authority by ICANN to do
"forced revocation" of IP space on legacy addresses.  If you believe
that this is something that ARIN should be doing, it should probably be
addressed at the ICANN level, and we can then discuss whether and how we
want to implement that authority here.  In the past anything other than
urging people to return space they are not using has not been something
that the Internet community as a whole has consented to.

So it`s a matter of doing the easy thing instead of the best thing?  It
ARINs responsibility to do the right thing, isn`t it?
