My contribution is related to the policy. I reserve my right to provide an
act for the circus at a later date.

Stating that the POC has no rights and then requiring them to take action on
our behalf seems questionable. I don't think we can require a POC to do

I'd be in favor of this if the work was ARIN's and it was effective. "Upon
notification of a major negative change in a Corporations status" might work
and leaving  the door open for methods of surveillance to implement this
section of the policy would be useful, IMHO.

The rewrite may read:

"Number resources are issued based on justified need to organizations and
not to individuals that represent those organizations. Upon notification
that a major negative event related to the Corporations solvency [define
these in defintions] has occurred, ARIN will freeze all assigned  provider
independent "PI" address space, ASN's, and affiliated resources deemed
necessary to protect ARIN assigned number resources and their disposition.
Changes to these resources during the negative event will be processed in a
manner consistent with ARIN policy and agreements in effect at the time of
the negative event".

Not in love with the M&A requirements. Too broad in depth and breadth. We've
been here before so I don't need to repeat.

Best Regards,
