[arin-ppml] Support for ARIN Proposal 2011-3

There is a discussion on the AC list regarding 2011-3 that I would like to
bring to this mailing list. Please let me know your thoughts.

In the proposed language for section 6.5.7 there is a renumbering clause,
"...provided that they agree to renumber into that new allocation and
return their prior allocation(s) within 5 years."

Does anyone take issue if this condition were missing from the proposal
since it applies to a limited set of cases. ARIN's method of assignment
should allow for most organizations, who already have allocations, to
expand into the new policy without a renumber requirement.

Should those providers that would like to utilize this new approach, but
are bound because their existing allocations are adjacent to other ARIN
assignments, incur the renumbering costs and obligations simply because
they deployed IPv6 earlier in the policy evolution?
