On 1 March 2007 the ARIN Advisory Council (AC) concluded its review of
the proposed policy 'eGLOP Multicast Address Assignments' and did not
accept it as a formal policy proposal.

Citing RFC 2050, the AC concluded that ARIN was not empowered to
administer multicast address space.

During the initial review period the AC may decide to:
1)  Accept the proposal as a formal policy proposal as it is presented,
2)  Work with the author to clarify, divide or combine it with another
proposal, or
3)  Not accept the policy proposal.

In the event that the AC decides not to accept the proposed policy, then
the author may elect to use the petition process to advance the
proposal. For petition details see the section called "Petition
Process" in the ARIN Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process which
can be found at:

The deadline for the author to initiate a petition per the ARIN Internet
Resource Policy Evaluation Process is 40 days prior to the meeting; the
petition deadline for the ARIN XIX Public Policy Meeting
is 14 March 2007. If the author chooses not to petition or the petition
is unsuccessful, then  the proposed policy is closed. If a petition is
successful, then the proposal will be numbered and posted for discussion
and presented at ARIN's Public Policy Meeting.
