Based on discussions with the AC Shepherds and input received on the
mailing list, I am revising my Lame Server proposal.


1.	Policy Proposal Name: Deprecate Lame Server Policy
2.	Author
	a.	name: Owen DeLong
	b.	email: owen at delong.com
	c.	telephone: 408-921-6984
	d.	organization: JITTR Networks

3.	Proposal Version: 2.0
4.	Submission Date: 11 September, 2007
5.	Proposal type: modify
	new, modify, or delete.
6.	Policy term: permanent
	temporary, permanent, or renewable.
7.	Policy statement:
		Replace Section 7 of the NRPM in it's entirety with the
		following text:

	7.	Staff action to improve ARIN public database accuracy and

		7.1	ARIN staff shall take reasonable and practicable means to
			ensure and improve the accuracy of all ARIN public
			databases, including, but, not limited to WHOIS,
			delegations of the in-addr.arpa zone, and, delegations
			of the ip6.arpa zone.

8.	Rationale:
		Recent PPML discussion has called attention to the
		fact that lame DNS delegations are more an operational
		issue than one of policy.  As such, the existing lame
		delegation policy should be removed from the NRPM
		to remove the resultant confusion.  This is not meant
		to prevent ARIN staff from taking reasonable action
		WRT DNS operational issues related to resources issued
		by ARIN, but, such action can be covered by staff
		operational guidelines and is not within the scope
		of Address Policy.

9.	Timetable for implementation:
		1 June, 2008
10.	Meeting presenter: Owen DeLong
