> Policy Proposal Name: Lame Delegations in IN-ADDR.ARPA
> Author: Paul Andersen on behalf of the ARIN AC
> Policy Term: Permanent
> Policy statement: This policy proposal replaces section 7.2 of the ARIN
> ARIN will actively identify lame DNS name server(s) for in-addr.arpa
> delegations associated with address blocks allocated, assigned or
> administered by ARIN. Upon identification of a lame delegation, ARIN shall
> attempt to contact the POC for that resource and resolve the issue.  If,
> following due diligence, ARIN is unable to resolve the lame delegation,
> ARIN will update the WHOIS database records resulting in the removal of
> lame servers.
> Rationale:  The policy as stated could not be implemented without placing
> an undue burden on ARIN staff resources.  The procedures mandated in the
> policy require a shifting of registration service resources from such
> activities as IP Analyst support for on-going registration actions as well
> as the telephonic and email help desks.  Removing the procedures from the
> policy allows the Director of Registration Services the flexibility of
> meeting all registration services needs and managing the identification,
> notification, and removal of lame delegations.
> Timetable for implementation:  90 days after adoption
