For all intents and purposes the global process is adequate. This is a  
regional issue. Dave Wilson (a participant in the RIPE Address Policy  
WG) identified this problem during the last RIPE meeting in Lisbon and  
has stated that he may introduce a policy proposal in the RIPE region  
to address it.

If I remember correctly, Dave was thinking that there would be a pause  
with regards to the final acceptance in the region before formal  
ratification. This might be adequate to prevent a situation where we  
could be in a stranglehold. The pause might be a way to allow for any  
contextual adjustments that may need to be made to foster better
