I retract the above statement. 2008-6 specified:

   Timetable for implementation:

   This policy [...]  would be implemented when [...] IPv4 address
   resources in the ARIN Region reach a threshold of scarcity
   recognized by the ARIN Board of Trustees as requiring this policy

It was there in every version of 2008-6, including the ones that I
supported. I concede that this text could reasonably be interpreted as
requiring a declaration of emergency for activation.

The rest of what I said and asked stands. As I told Milton, this
particular question was the least of them.
