Here are my two cents on this one:
Not sure if I am for or against this one. Below is are the pro's and con's I pulled from ppml and I can understand. Thus...leading to my indecision at this point.
Brief Summary of PPML Pro's:
-This would allow for fewer potential aggregates allocated to an organization providing more consolidated routing announcements.
-a level playing field is a good thing among RIR's
-I'm sure ARIN staff will continue to be diligent in ensuring that the address blocks assigned are justified over the period
they are requested for.
Brief Summary of PPML Con's:
-I think this proposal moves us in the wrong direction with regards to avoiding hoarding as IPv4 free pool exhaustion nears.
-Perhaps policy proposals to change 1-year-supply clauses to 6-month-supply ones would be another way to level the playing field, while moving us in the direction we need to go to deal with IPv4 free pool exhaustion...
-This may lead to hording of Ipv4 addresses.

Policy Proposal Name: Expand timeframe of Additional Requests
Author: Dan Alexander
Proposal Version: Version 1.0
Submission Date: 8/14/2007
Proposal type: modify
Policy term: permanent
The proposal is to modify section 220.127.116.11 of the NRPM
"After a subscriber has been a member of ARIN for one year they may
choose to request a six-month supply of IP addresses."
"After an organization has been an ARIN member in good standing for one
year, they may choose to request up to a 12 month supply of IP addresses."
Currently, all RIR's provide organizations with at least a 12 month
supply of IPv4 address space when making subsequent requests, with the
exception of the ARIN region. The primary reason for this change is for
continuity among all RIR. In doing so, all established organizations
have a more consistent access to IP resources.
The adjustment does not change demand on IPv4 address space. It only
changes the frequency in which established organizations need to request
This would allow for fewer potential aggregates allocated to an
organization providing more consolidated routing announcements.
This does not change the requirement on new organizations where
established growth trends have yet to be established.
Timetable for implementation: Immediate
