My understanding is that the authors do not intend for this to be a global policy which would require identical language in all regions (see NRPM Section 10), but rather that the policy be implemented globally. The latter allows for regional differences. What is  not clear in that regard is where the authors are willing to accept regional differences.

The staff comment is valid and I'm not questioning that.  But here is the beginning of the global policy process instruction on the NRO website:

#Any individual may submit a global proposal. Each RIR community must ratify an identical version
#of the proposed policy.

How "identical?"  If the policies have to be forced into the NRPM in ARIN and whatever the equivalent is in another region, can any policy ever meet the requirement above?

Sorry for an idle though here - this isn't a comment on the policy but is related to this being targeted as a global policy.
