[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal: Protective Usage Transfer Policy for IPv4 Address

Under the new policy development process, the ARIN AC has to decide
whether to accept a policy proposal onto their docket, with the intent
to develop it into a draft policy. The AC then has the authority to
make whatever changes to the policy are warranted. Given that, my
question to you (and to the community generally) is:
Do you think the ARIN Advisory Council should accept this policy
proposal as the basis for a draft policy to be discussed at an upcoming
policy meeting? Why or why not?
