I think I can answer #1: Bill proposed 2008-6 as an alternative to 2008-2,
so that in case 2008-2 fails to reach consensus, we have a bare-bones
alternative on the docket at L.A. that could be advanced if there's
consensus for something simpler.
My own hope is that we'll discuss both a revised 2008-2 (based on survey
results and further discussion here) and 2008-6 at L.A., make any
remaining minor edits to 2008-2 to bring it in line with consensus
(perhaps revising it to be more like 2008-6 on some points), and hopefully
have the consensus to adopt 2008-2 at that point. I guess we'll see if we
can develop that level of consensus around the issue or not.
I'll let Bill respond regarding the specifics of his proposal.

>> 8.2.1 Emergency Transfer Policy for IPv4 Addresses
>> For a period of 3 years from policy implementation, transfer of ARIN

>> legitimate and will be documented accordingly under the following
>> 1. Transfer takes place from a holder of IPv4 addresses recognized by

>> 2. Transfer takes place to a recipient that has documented
