Here's my $0.02:

>  2006-7 Changes to IPv6 initial allocation criteria

I support 2006-7. I prefer the wording proposed in Annex B in the staff

>  2007-13: Removal of ISP Immediate Need from End-User

I support 2007-13.

>  2007-14: Resource Review Process

I support 2007-14.

>  2007-15: Authentication of Legacy Resources

I OPPOSE 2007-15 as written. I do like the proposed Legacy RSA.  I would
be supportive if the 3rd paragraph were revised as follows:

"No changes shall be made to legacy resource records which are not
covered by a registration services agreement after December 31, 2008"

This change gives a minimum of 1 year of outreach efforts.

>  2007-16: IPv4 Soft Landing

I support 2007-16.

>  2007-17: Legacy Outreach and Partial Reclamation

I OPPOSE 2007-17.  The Legacy RSA proposes additional benefits for the
return of IP resources, which address this issue.

>  2007-18: Global Policy for the Allocation of the Remaining IPv4
>  Address Space

I OPPOSE 2007-18, in favor of 2007-23.

>  2007-19: IANA Policy for Allocation of ASN Blocks to RIRs

I support 2007-19 - as it codifies the existing practice (as described
in the Rationale)

>  2007-21: PIv6 for legacy holders with RSA and efficient use

I support 2007-21.

>  2007-22: Expand timeframe of Additional Requests

I OPPOSE 2007-22, though I have mixed feelings about it. On the one
hand, I like the idea of harmonizing policy with other RIRs. On the
other, the policy may have negative effects on IPv4 conservation
efforts, which far outweigh any benefits of harmonization.

>  2007-23: End Policy for IANA IPv4 allocations to RIRs

I support 2007-23.

>  2007-24: IPv6 Assignment Guidelines

I support 2007-24. Simple is better.

>  2007-25: IPv6 Policy Housekeeping

I support 2007-25, clarification is a good thing.

>  2007-26 Lame Delegation Policy

I support 2007-26.
