I also OPPOSE this policy, for the reason above and because
the policy itself is fatally flawed by the changes made by
the BOT.  I've never been in favor of monetizing IP addys,
but stripping the sunset clause and adding V6 and even ASNs
is way, way past prudent.  If there is an emergency here,
it is one caused entirely by this unprecedented BOT abuse
of the policy process.

So far I have seen *NO* support for this policy.  Zero.
Zip.  If it goes forward anyway, it will be very clear 
that the ideas of "consensus" and "community policy" are
mere travesties, to be discarded whenever the BOT finds
that convenient.
