What are the reasons to wait? If clarity edits are required the current
global PDP has an accommodation for that. Major edits, especially after
consensus in this region or review in others requires resubmission to all
forums regardless. Pausing might save time with respect to the
round-the-world requirements, but seems like it only saves anything
significant and worthwhile if all RIR's had a pause, something that would
probably need to be codified in the ICANN <> RIR MoU. Opening that can of
worms is undesirable since one or the other may be at a significant
[dis]advantage point than when the agreement was previously negotiated.
Changing terms of agreements with RIR's at this stage of v4 depletion is
probably unwise, but I trust that John Curran has a handle on.

This is the second time that the ARIN AC has introduced instability into the
global pdp. That's not a defect of the current process IMHO, it's a failure
to follow the guidelines and an exploit of the process with the regional
PDP. From my perspective, ARIN region global policy handling is broken.

I disagree, and I continue to be concerned that this action wasn't very well
thought out and that has and continues to be my point with respect to policy
handling [never mind this proposal with respect to that].

I hope that is helpful to your internal AC discussions with regards to
proposal handling and the PDP.
