	Please provide any documentation you can to support this belief.
	Certainly, the equivalant policy in EVERY other RIR has not created  
this problems in
		any other region, so, I'd like to see any data you have that  
supports this belief.

	Network providers can clean it up by de-routing it and adding it to  
the bogon filters
		etc.  This can be done whether the space is a direct assignment  
from ARIN or

	Again, data to support this belief would be good.  I'm pretty  
familiar with what it
		takes to justify a /22, and, I think it's pretty trivial if you're  
willing to commit
		fraud either way.

	Yep... I expected that.  I'm also pretty sure that the vote in the  
room was much
		closer than the vote in the AC meeting.  I believe there is more  
		to this policy on the AC than in the community.

Now, as to your other comments:

Yes, in terms of ARIN participation, this policy is championed by a  
small (but growing)
group of people active in ARIN.  One of the reasons for that is that  
the majority of
organizations that would benefit from this policy are not present for  
ARIN public
policy meetings.  For them, the network is a tool and not their core  
business. As
such, it's kind of hard to justify the time, travel budget, etc.   
Most of them depend on
outsource companies and people like me to do that for them.

While there's no provision for this fact in the public policy  
process, I was actually
representing no less than 5 organizations with ARIN resources all of  
who would
like to see this policy implemented.

In addition, I have at least 10 clients who would benefit from this  
policy because
it would allow them to multihome without taking additional routing  
slots and without
business risk of abrupt renumbering being required when their  
provider goes
out of business.  These concerns are sufficiently important to at  
least half of them
that they affect their SoX compliance.

Hopefully that places the need in some perspective.
