Ed, does the language in the proposal now meet your request below:

4. Announcement of IANA Allocations 
The IANA, the NRO, and the RIRs will make announcements and update their 
respective web sites regarding an allocation made by the IANA to an RIR.
and the NRO will establish administrative procedures to manage this process.

# 4. Announcement of IANA allocations to the RIRs
# When address space is allocated to a RIR, the IANA will send a detailed
# announcement to the receiving RIR. The IANA will also make announcements
# to all other RIRs, informing them of the recent allocation. The RIRs will
# coordinate announcements to their respective membership lists and any
# lists they deem necessary.

This issue came up in discussing a similar policy for IPv4 by ICANN's 
gTLD constituency:

# The suggestion relates to the second sentence of the first paragraph of
# Section 4:"The IANA will also make announcements to all other RIRs,
# informing them of the recent allocation."

So, I'd suggest adding a sentence stating that "IANA will also 
announce the allocation to other interested parties."

This is something that IANA ought to do, not the RIR's.  The RIR's 
don't have the relationships with gTLDs, ccTLDs, etc., etc., that 
IANA has.

If you knew what I was thinking, you'd understand what I was saying.
