It wasn't my intent to completely rewrite 11.4, I simply wanted to 
remove the terms lease and license.  When I looked at it it seemed that 
we could remove the one phrase without significantly changing the 
policies intent.  I guess we could remove the word normal too, but this 
doesn't real conform to the intent of the Policy Proposal, to "Eliminate 
the term license in the NRPM".  Also, the more we change the more likely 
we could have unintended side effects. But, looking at this I think we 
could remove the word "normal" and not change the intent.


Modify section 11.4 by removing “on a lease/license basis” and "normal", 
leaving the following;

11.4 Resource Allocation Term and Renewal

The Numbering Resources are allocated for a period of one year. The
allocation can be renewed on application to ARIN providing information
as per Detail One. The identity and details of the applicant and the
allocated Numbering Resources will be published under the conditions of
ARIN's publication policy. At the end of the experiment, resources 
allocated under this policy will be returned to the available pool.
