Hi David,

>From what I saw, opinion coalesced around two major points of view:

A. 4.10 as written will carelessly obstruct useful consumption of the
addresses. Just give the addresses out honestly until they're gone.

B. 4.10 as written will carelessly consume the reserved addresses.
These are the last ones. We should very carefully and very stingily
parcel them out.

I think Marty's proposal does an excellent job of balancing these two
points of view and I'm wholeheartedly for it. The vast majority of us
seem to agree that 4.10 doesn't get the job done, there's no point
trying to figure out how to parcel out addresses unless we make sure
there are addresses to parcel out, and if we can't come to a
conclusion on how to parcel them out within a reasonable amount of
time then we shouldn't continue sitting on them.

You missed a stitch here. Leave enough time following the October 2011
meeting for the proposal to go through last call and board adoption.
Maybe something like 1/1/2012 as the expiration date.
