If you'd like a rational date at which to sunset the policy, you might
want to tune up this timetable language significantly. It's going to be
a long, long time before IANA issues the last /8s to the RIRs.
I'm opposed to this policy as written, and I'm opposed to this policy as
intended. Three years covers roughly five cycles of Public Policy
Meetings plus a partial cycle for implementation. Let's collect data
and implement new policy as guided by that data in a timeframe and
manner that's right for the ARIN region and the Internet as a whole.
