[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal: Extend Experimental Renewal Timeframe

Is the argument that renewing an experimental allocation every year is a
hardship?   Would anyone care to post about their experiences with an
experimental allocation and the renewal process?

The rationale statement says, "Reality shows that any true
experiment in technical nature that addresses the internet architecture
and routing will take at least two years given the constraints of time
and the simple fact of working out what could be a bug in the theory and
not a show stopper. "

Can the authors or someone on list, give a current example of a "true
experiment in technical nature that addresses the internet architecture and
routing" that is adversely affected by the 1 year renewal requirement?
