Nice detailed proposal.  One area that needs some more meat is
the definition of abuse.  Any suggestions there would be great!

I do have some particulars about the details to consider...

Do we need a mechanism for downstream allocations/assignments to be mapped
to an origin ASN by the ARIN member when downstreams are not members?

Nominated by ASO AC or ARIN AC?  Or, by general community?  Any requirements
for candidacy?

How is abuse confirmed?  Again, related to the definition of abuse.

Similarly, how is resolution of abuse determined?

How does one ensure that there is no abuse by the committee itself?
Or do we trust the judgment of the committee based on the nomination

Also, would a reinstatement process be needed?
