One suggestion I had provided at the Policy Bof was to take a policy in the
"proposal stage" and make a short easy to understand summary of what the
proposal means.  Also make a list of how this proposal if put in active
status would affect small, medium and large Internet using companies.  If
you make it very clear up front how such a proposal may effect a certain
type of IP Address User....they are much more likely to provide input on
ppml and at the conference because they are no longer having to do all the
guess work of how this proposal could possibly affect their companies bottom
