Making ULA-C available on the terms specified in the referenced
draft is an invitation to massive abuse.
That was the whole point of my ULA, GLA, NCN, and the potential for abuse

Quite the opposite, actually.

Personally, I think that the RIRs have much work to do on policy to
accommodate NCN and that it should be done through a unified
set of policies which allow reasonable management of GUA to
encompass ULA-C as essentially a community convention for
indicating a network should not be globally routed and nothing
more. To do this without creating a potential for abuse, what is
needed is a much more relaxed GUA policy divorced from the
idea that every GUA prefix issued will end up in the routing
