I'd be distressed if the RIRs entered into a 5-way Prisoner's Dilemma  
game in their handling of the IPv4 free pool exhaustion.  I'm in the  
process of preparing something like Soft Landing for the APNIC public  
policy process (and will do something similar in the other RIRs), but  
one of the reasons I'm not couching this in terms of a 'global  
policy' is because I don't think it needs to be identical across the  
various regions.  If it does, then I'm not sure I understand the need  
for multiple RIRs...
