[arin-ppml] Proposal 2011-6

It is understandable that people would want IPv4 resources to stay in the region when they are scarce. But what happens when the ARIN region starts to reach parity with IPv6 services? IPv4 resources will start to lose their urgency in this region, but will still be needed in others.

What happens if the DoD were to return several /8's to ARIN? Is it in the best interest of the global Internet community that the ARIN region not return resources? Does anyone consider this hoarding? If another region were to exhibit similar behavior, this region would be quite vocal in opposition.

Does the current wording implement a double standard?

Subject: [arin-ppml] Proposal 2011-6


As the ARIN Public Policy Meeting fast approaches, I wish to once more reach out to the community for comments and insight related to Draft Policy 2011-6 for which Chris Grundemann and I are the designated shepherds on the Advisory Council.

We would like to hear support or objection or any experience from ARIN or world community that can provide a better vetting before and during the meeting.  This, so that when the AC must decide its fate, this Draft Policy will be positioned for its obvious and best disposition.

Thank you all for your continuing interest, engagement and consideration for the Policy Development Process of ARIN and participation on this mailing list and at the Public Policy Meetings whether in person or by virtual connection.

To refresh your memory as to the contents of this proposal here is the policy text that will be discussed next week in San Juan.

Draft Policy ARIN-2011-6

Returned IPv4 Addresses

Date: 10 March 2011

Policy statement:

4.1.9 Returned IPv4 Addresses

Except where otherwise directed by policy; all IPv4 addresses returned to, recovered, or revoked by ARIN will be made

available for allocation or assignment in the ARIN region as quickly as practicable.


Adopting this proposal will result in the clarification of the status of returned IPv4 addresses. IPv4 address resources

should not sit idle due to lack of policy clarity.

Timetable for implementation: Immediately
