I would like to share with all of you this
proposal. Since it is not a policy proposal, I
don't know really how to proceed, but I guess
that it is enough to send it to the list.
This proposal doesn't intend to substitute the
Policy Proposal "2007-16 IPv4 Soft Landing" and
is not incompatible with the discussion of this
proposal and/or its eventual adoption.
I will send the same proposal to the others RIRs' poilicy lists.
Proposal for the creation of a cross-regions working group
Some proposals have been submitted through some
RIRs policy development process, which focus on
the gradual modification of the requirements for
receiving IPv4 addresses as the pool of unallocated IPv4 addresses diminishes.
Most or all proposals which have been made appear
to be incomplete and ineffective if approved in
only one region. Therefore, it is proposed the
creation of a working group made up by two
appropriate respected individuals active in the
policy process within each regions community.
These ten individuals would work on one or more
joint proposals that could then be processed in
every region according to their corresponding policy development processes.
The objective of the working group would not be
to produce proposals for global policies, but
proposals to be sumbitted to every RIRs. The
conclusion could be, of course, that the
proposals should be different in each region.
Since the proposal (if there are any) should go
later through each Policy Development Process,
there will not be any impact of this proposal in
the independence of each region to adopt the
poclicies that are considered more convenients.
Naturally, the proposals that have already been
presented in relation to this issue would be
important input for this working group, one
possible conclusion being that these proposals
contain the best possible policies and should be
presented. Without this level of coordination, it
will be difficult to obtain proposals to be
submitted for discussion in all regions with
reasonable chances of success. One member of
each RIRs staff would also participate in this working
group, in the capacity of observers, so as to
provide all the support, advice and information
that the group deems necessary. IANA will also be
invited to appoint up to two persons to the working
group in the same condition of observers.
The working schedule would be defined by the
group itself, but it should be anticipated that
the proposals, in case it is decided they are
needed, be presented for their discussion as soon as possible.
The following are some of the ideas that have
already been presented either formally or
informally and that will be available for the
consideration of this working group (but not limited to) :
· Increasing the requirements for
receiving additional allocations as IANAs
central pool of addresses diminishes.
· Adding to the current requirements the
requirement to develop the availability of IPv6 infrastructure.
· Reducing the sizes of the blocks that
are allocated as IANAs central pool of addresses diminishes.
· Including within the gradual increase of
restrictions the requirement that when one RIR
runs out of addresses the others will
automatically be moved to a more conservative
phase in order to minimize RIR shopping.
