I disagree.  I think it should be made generic NOW, in such a way that
all ARIN has to do is update the other policy and this one automatically
tracks it.

As to Einar's comments, what I think he's saying is that it
shouldn't incorporate a specific other policy by reference,
but, should, generically incorporate ALL ARIN reassignment
information privacy policies, as they exist now, and, as
they may be ammended in the future.
