This is a good idea, however it is missing one essential element.
How do you get people to read this summary?

Can we say with certainty that the people on the
ARIN members' mailing list are the right people
to be asking for policy comments. In many companies
people are expressly forbidden from making public 
comments unless that is part of their role within
the business. Can we be certain that all of the
ARIN member contacts have policymaking as part
of their role?
