Exactly! The trajectory of the chain is more important than an absolute
number of steps in the chain. But this kind of thing does not belong in
the policy. If possible, I'd like to see the AC fix the wording before
going to the board. Outside of policy, I'd like the BoT to instruct ARIN
staff to publish the details of their technical practice regarding
authentication, and have that practice reviewed by someone with
recognized security expertise.
