Every single sentence in the NRPM could have a sunset clause, doubling the 
size of the document and requiring that every part of it be constantly 
maintained.  Since the public _already has_ the capability to roll back 
any part of the NRPM at any time, or to override any previously-enacted 
sunset clause at any time, sunset clauses are no-ops.

8.1, paragraph 2, among others.

ARIN does not give resources to organizations that do not sign an RSA.  
That doesn't need to be restated in every paragraph.

Is there a perceived problem there?  Is there a perceived need to 
transfer IPv6 addresses or ASNs?  If so, is that more problematic than 
IPv4 addresses?

That was indeed the subject of no little discussion, as I imagine 
you'll find when you read the meeting minutes.
