I fully support this.
The disregarding of the "For a period of 3 years from policy implementation"
statement in the policy proposal was NOT mentioned AT ALL in the actual
records of the policy proposal itself:
For THIS REASON ALONE setting aside ALL OTHER discussion I would be
in favor of Owen's proposal.
The COMPLETE implementation of ANY policy is a sacred trust, and while
I might condone the ARIN board's actions of removing the sunset clause
IF AN EXPLANATION WAS SUPPLIED IN THE POLICY RECORD the fact that one
WAS NOT and NO mention of this appears in the record is, in my opinion,
far, far worse than the thwarting the will of the community.
It is one thing for ARIN to thwart the will of the community for reasons
they feel are good and have a logical basis (changed premises, etc.) It is
ENTIRELY DIFFERENT for them to do so and SWEEP IT UNDER THE RUG by NOT
documenting it in the proposal.
So, are we going to have to now, check and verify every accepted proposal
against the actual NRPM itself to make sure the board didn't just
"forget" to include something it didn't like?
