[arin-ppml] ARIN-2011-6: Returned IPv4 Addresses - Last Call

OK I get it.
So to echo Bill Herrin's comments, what is the purpose of the "Until"
portion of 2011-6? Whether it is part of this proposal or not, ('global
policy which clearly defines a mechanism for the re-allocation') it will or
it won't happen. What is the advantage to the community to push for global
policy on re-allocation, if many of us (me included) would ideally prefer
not to get into a return cycle?

Or how about.... "In the absence of " instead of  "Until"
