Presumably you are talking about a process for collecting
comments and forwarding them on to IETF et al. This is 
certainly something that I would support. Many people in 
the operational community don't belong to IETF discussion
forums and it is rather awkward to find the forum, 
figure out what needs to be done to enable comments,
and then submit the comments. If ARIN could enable
people to comment in a less formal way and then
collate these to the IETF along with contact info
for the original writer, then this should provide
benefits to both IETF and operators without compromising
ARIN's policy-making position.

This is not a lot different from the way in which
PPML discussions get summarized before presentation
of a policy proposal at the meetings.
