The AC stands ready to help but a petition does not return the proposal to the AC's docket until after it has been presented at the PPM and community support has been proven. I will ask ARIN staff to elaobrate on this.

I dont quite understand how your petition process makes sense or is at 
all contained in the text quoted below. The dates alone should render it 
impossible to petition the AC decision at ppm. Furthermore to what 
purpose does the petition serve at this point if not to return it to the 
AC docket?

If you perhaps mean that by petitioning here on ppml, there is a 
side-effect of slapping my name up as official presenter of the draft 
policy, well that was part of my original query.
