That's a really bad rounding algorithm. It would be better to say
that the date, 90 days before the renewal date, is considered to be
the deadline for discussions. That way, everyone marches to the same
rhythm and ARIN staff can plan their actions based on when renewal 
dates come around.

An appellate court? Do they need some rules by which they must reach
their decisions?

In any case, I am opposed to this policy. It is too simplistic and I
don't believe that it can be repaired with a bit of editing because it
starts with the wrong premises.
