I oppose this proposal. Justified use and allocation of IPv4 address space under ARIN's current policy is justified use regardless of whether it is the last /8 or not. I agree that there are some reasons to hold addresses in reserve for transition items, but the existing policy already makes provision for that in the form of a /10. It is impossible to say that we as a community will know (and more importantly, agree on) 100% of the reasons why addresses should be allocated in the 10.4.2 endgame and can get them all documented in the policy process in a reasonable amount of time so that this is not an overly inflexible and limiting rule for ARIN staff and users of IPv4 space.

Proposal Originator: Joe Maimon

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 29 April 2010

Proposal type: New

Policy statement:

Add section 4.11

4.11 Last /8 utilization

Resources received from IANA under section 10.4.2 (the last /8) will be
unavailable for any purposes not explicitly specified, such as 4.10, and
will be held in reserve.


No reason to blow the last /8 as quickly as all the others.
