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.
