Hi Mark,

That text you're quoting is in the "IPv4 Policies" doc:

It's in the multihomed section as well as the section above it.
That policy got put in those sections a while ago.  Today it
would be a stand alone policy, pertaining to whois output
and privacy issues.  Earlier I wasn't sure where you got
that from, I mistakenly thought you we're referring to 2001-2.

May I suggest that in 2003-5 that you replace "the multi-homed policy"
with "IPv4 policies"?  And then take of the last three words
of the paragraph too, remove "to ARIN staff".
