kevin, can you look at <https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2008_6.html>,
and tell us whether this policy (which has been adopted but not implemented)
also appears to have the flaw you're describing here?  2009-1 is a cleanup
of 2008-6, so if you're objecting to specified recipients in 2009-1, then i
wonder if you also object to specified recipients in 2008-6 (as adopted)?
