Can we somehow provide some clarity sooner rather than later? At a high
level, is this policy proposal really suggesting that 4-7 large-enough
ISPs could wipe out all of ARIN's IPv4 free pool? At a lower level, the
composition of this proposal hurts my head, with things like "insure"
vs. "ensure", or "at least until the maximum equals the minimum
allocation or assignment size".
