Hello All:

I am in favor of this.  I've been following the comments in the various
threads and subthreads, and would add only this:

- There is at least one major transit provider that will accept nothing more
specific than a /32.
- If we continue to inhibit providers' ability to get a /32, they may have
reachability issues.
- The v6 space is incredibly large.  Really.  What do we really gain from
limiting some people to a /48?

> Proposal Originator: Stacy Hughes and Cathy Aronson
> Proposal Version: 1.0
> Date: 29 May 2009
> Proposal type: modify
> Policy term: permanent
> Policy statement:
> 1) Remove ³by advertising that connectivity through its single

> Removing the 200 end site requirement enables smaller, but no less

> Timetable for implementation: immediately upon BoT ratification
