Agreed.  Although I did not add it to the proposal, I believe that
ARIN staff would want to do the verification on a set date every year
and make some sort of announcement every year before the verification,
to try and help POCs be prepared to receive and respond to the
verification email.  Also, the same sender address should always be
used, to allow whitelisting.  Do you believe that this should be
specified in the proposal?
