Here's the link to the proposal currently on the ARIN website.


Personally I'm a little disappointed that the proposal is only to reduce 
the minimum to /22, though I suppose with all the opposition against doing 
anything at all it was probably done to find a middle ground.  

My feelings on this personally are that since the current minimum that 
"the internet" accepts is /24, the micro-assignment policy really should 
be reduced to /24, especially since LACNIC and APNIC both have 
micro-allocation policies that have /24 as a minimum.
