To assist the comparison of the alternate forms of wording proposed for 2008-6, I list them below.

Policy Proposal 2008-6 wording:

For a period of 3 years from policy implementation, ARIN-region number
resources may be released, in whole or in part, to ARIN or another
organization, by the authorized holder of the resource.

Number resources may only be received under RSA, with demonstrated need,
in the exact amount which they are able to justify under ARIN
resource-allocation policies.

Bill Herrin's wording:

For a period of 3 years from policy implementation, resource holders
served by ARIN may designate a recipient for number resources they
release to ARIN. ARIN will honor said designation provided the
recipient meets all other policy criteria for registering those
resources.


Seems to me that Bill Herrin's version is clearer, but changes the proposal by stating the transfer of resources must involve ARIN as a transfer intermediary.

2008-6 says: "..may be released...to ARIN or another organization...."

Bill says: "..may designate a recipient for numbers they release to ARIN..."

Is this a semantic difference???...where in practice, the transfer is really 'on paper' and ARIN is going to record the transfer in either case?

And, of course, Scott has already highlighted the lack of 2008-6's second paragraph in Bill's alternative.  Could the second paragraph simply be added while eliminating the last sentence of Bill's...as that would be redundant....

And, the clause .. "with demonstrated need" ...can be removed because it is implicit in the .."able to justify"... clause...

This would yield...

For a period of 3 years from policy implementation, resource holders
served by ARIN may designate a recipient for number resources they
release to ARIN. 

Number resources may only be received under RSA in the exact amount 
which they are able to justify under ARIN resource-allocation policies.
