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".
