[ppml] IPv6 Justifications

Hello Richard,

The current IPv6 policy in place that ARIN staff uses to
review requests for IPv6 address space cites the 200 /48
assignments in two years language, therefore asking
questions about that is part of the request process.

There has been some discussion on this list recently
about possibly modifying the policy to remove the
200 customers within two years criteria language.

Some participants on this list have stated the 200
/48 assignments in two years criteria may actually be
preventing organizations from requesting IPv6
address space from the Regional Internet Registries.
One individual has posted a policy proposal to this
mailing list for discussion that would change the
200 customers within two years criteria.  Along with
other policy proposals this one will be re-posted to
the ARIN public policy mailing list later this week
for discussion prior to the upcoming public policy meeting
scheduled for April 6 - 9.

Best Regards,

Richard Jimmerson
Director of Operations
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
