Hi Chris,

As much as I favor moving proposals to the full community, I agree
with the AC's assessment. At the very least it should come back as
separate v4 and v6 proposals before moving forward.

Pushing heavy-handed documentation requirements on IPv6 doesn't seem
particularly timely to me. If anything, a little deliberate
inattention could help grease the deployment skids. I would not
support a proposal that placed additional documentation requirements
on the use of IPv6 right now.

On the other hand, I hold IPv4 reassignments from Sprint, Verizon,
Cox, Qwest and Twtelecom. Of the five, only TWTelecom has registered
all of my reassignments /28 and larger in whois. Too many of the
X-Larges aren't holding up their end of the bargain when it comes to
the privileges they've been granted as LIRs. Given the impending
shortage of IPv4 addresses, it makes good sense to me to shorten the

For these reasons, I OPPOSE the petition to move the proposal 109
forward as written. Split it up and if the AC still fails to act on
it, ask me again.
