[arin-ppml] Accusation of fundamental conflict of interest/ IP address policy pitched directly to ICANN

While threads are coming fast and furious this week,
I thought that it might be useful to step back and look at
a policy proposal that fundamentally affects our policy making.

On the http://icann.org/en/correspondence/ page is a proposal
(look for "Policy Proposal on IP Address Registration Services"
on the above url).  there are multiple versions.

In addition to the proposed policy, there is a letter of even greater
concern at http://icann.org/en/correspondence/holtzman-to-jeffrey-02mar11-en.pdf

This one says that the numbering community (the ASO) isn't capable of making
objective decisions regarding this proposal, so it ask that "a more open forum",
one overseen by a neutral director or the NTIA.

It seems this is an "end run" around the global PDP, something which I
think the
ARIN community should understand fully at this juncture in deliberations.

route indicates how we get there."  Jon Postel
