This just sounds like 'in your face' muscle flexing to me.  If we start
acting like a bully we will be regarded and treated as a bully.  

I oppose this proposal.  Artificial shortages and artificial price increases
are a bad idea all around.  We need to act to strengthen our reputation for
veracity and fair dealing.  This proposal would weaken that reputation.

> Policy Proposal Name: IPv4 Example Shortages
> Proposal Originator:Martin J. Levy
> Proposal Version: 1.0
> Date: 20 May 2009
> Proposal type: new
> Policy term: permanent
> Policy statement:
> Add section 4.1.8 to the NRPM to state:
> 4.1.8 IPv4 Example Shortages
> Beginning on January 1, 2010, and on the first of each January and July
> thereafter, for a period of 7 calendar days, ARIN will not process
> requests from existing IPv4 holders for additional IPv4 space.
> Rationale:
> The IANA is expected to issue the last of the available IPv4 address
> space to RIRs some time in 2011.  RIRs are expected to run out
> approximately one year later.  These brief delays should be minimal (no)
> impact to organizations with existing space wanting more, but, can
> provide a brief but visible glimpse into the future that awaits after
> runout.
> Organizations which fail to plan for these delays will have the option
> of waiting for ARIN to issue their space, or, can avail themselves of
> the transfer policy contained in section 8.3 of the NRPM (resulting from
> policy proposals 2008-6 and 2009-1). The cost of these delays will be
> minimal compared to what will happen when space simply is no longer
> available.
> This policy has no impact on IPv6 assignments or allocations and has no
> impact on new organizations making their first IPv4 request.
> Timetable for implementation: 1 January 2010
