My vague memory is that someone stood up and said something like:

   conditions in the us and canada are xyz, and the rest of the arin
   region has different conditions

To which someone (I think Ray) said something like:

   This policy applies to the Caribbean, we also have some other islands

Basically in an attempt to correct the speaker that the policy was not
"non-us non-canada" but rather Caribbean.

To which someone else added something like:

   It seems like they would have similar issues.

I don't recall anything that sounded like "advocating" to me.

The transcript is at
but I see nothing of this conversation there.  It may well have
happened in an open mike, or at the social.

Truthfully (and part of why I posed the Wikipedia links) I'm not sure
many people in the US, Canada, or the Caribbean know ARIN is providing
IPs for a small uninhabited island near antarctica, for instance.  Id
doubt many people have considered the issue at all.
