ARIN Policy Proposal 2005-1 removes one of the current obstacles for the
real-world deployment of IPv6 by multi-national businesses.  Global
enterprise address management is critical.  Global businesses are also
challenged with unique routing policy and multi-homed sites which are the
criteria for assignment of an AS Numbers (ARIN Policy Section 5).  Beyond
multi-homing at multiple sites, businesses also concurrently deal with
dozens of service providers around the planet in the deployment of IP-based
enterprise WAN backbones.

Proposal 2005-1 is solid and helps businesses in the effective planning,
deployment. and management global enterprise IPv6 address spaces based on
the established and well understood Autonomous System Number Guidelines.

I encourage the Proposal 2005-1 comments to focus on how the adoption of
IPv6 can be ENABLED for businesses with minimum complexity.  Current
standards and policies do not adequately address unique routing,
multi-homing, and multiple service providers on a global basis
