Could be perceived as an attempt to manipulate regional
PDP's. Are you asking for the RIR's to officially sanction
this? Or as you just asking for volunteers? 

If it's the latter, and you are suggesting that whatever
came out of such a thing would have to still traverse the
ARIN PDP and ICANN MoU/Attachment global policy process,
this sounds just fine to me.
