For those that are following the ARIN XXI 
meeting, this is the email that I mentioned in the mike.
The frist goal of a working group like this would 
be to explore the feasibility and/or convience of this kind of policies.

If somebody from ARIN community want to become 
involved in an initiative like this, please contact me.
