If any of the member networks on "an internet" is connected to "The 
internet",
then, they fall into category 1.  If not, then, it's category 2 and not
an ARIN issue.

(Just my opinion, but, I think that works generally)

Yes.  We're talking policy here (it is the policy mailing list afterall :-),
so, expertise is a separate issue.

Right... This proposal is an attempt to change exactly that.

Micro-Allocations should still be SUBCSCRIBERS.  They are ALLOCATIONS, and,
as such, the recipient is an LIR and should be a SUBSCRIBER.  I agree the
SUBSCRIBER fees should be smaller than /32 SUBSCRIBER fees, and I think the
previously described fee structure makes sense for these.

Right... That's what I'm hoping for in terms of ASSIGNMENT or NON-SUBSCRIBER
policy.  Stephen, does that address your fee concerns?

Heck... Based on the above, it looks like if we get this policy implemented,
the structure is already there.
