I support this policy. To me, it is a reasonable clarification of the
of existing policy.
>### * ###
> Policy Proposal Name: Rationalize Multi-Homing Definition and Requirement
> Author: Robert Seastrom
> Policy term: permanent
> Policy statement: In existing policy 18.104.22.168, replace the phrase
> "multi-homed organizations must:" with the phrase "organizations
> applying under the multi-homed policy must:" In existing policy
> 22.214.171.124.2, replace "Provide information showing that the requested
> IP address space will be utilized within three months." with
> "Provide information showing that the requested IP address space
> will be utilized within three months and demonstrating an intent to
> announce the requested space in a multi-homed fasion."
> Rationale: Presently, organizations wishing to apply for their first
> address space under the multi-homed policy must demonstrate that
> they have ALREADY announced a DIFFERENT address block via
> multi-homing, while simultaneously promising to renumber out of
> that same block. This creates needless make-work for ISPs which are
> planning to multi-home, related to old resources which they're
> already trying to get out of. Likewise, it creates needless work
> for both of their upstream providers, who have to temporarily
> announce a prefix which DOESN'T NEED to be multi-homed, solely to
> demonstrate to ARIN analysts that the applying ISP is multi-homed.
> However, this same criterion can be demonstrated just as
> effectively by the applying ISP showing the analyst contracts with
> multiple ISPs under which the newly-applied-for block WILL BE
> multi-homed, and this more accurately reflects the intent of the
> original policy, while removing needless make-work at a time when
> the applicant is surely already quite busy with the real
> requirements of their change-over.
> Timetable for implementation: immediate

If it wasn't crypto-signed, it probably didn't come from me.
