Absolutely not!  As someone else on this list mentioned, we're talking 
about a different policy for a different CONTINENT, and one which is 
made up of mostly "3rd-world" countries.  Rural America is much more 
similar to the rest of the U.S., and does not, in any case, represent a 
easily separable geography.

...and don't try to say that 2003-15 doesn't represent a continent.  It 
represents the portion of that different continent that ARIN currently 
has control over.  (...and only has that control for historical reasons, 
a problem that AfriNIC is trying to fix!)

2003-15 and this "Rural America" proposal are very different things, and 
there is no reason to consider them the same.
