Hi Chris,

Actually, there is a third possible scenario. Frank or I or anyone
else can petition. With 10 statements of support the other version
will also move to last call.

This issue isn't important enough to me to initiate a petition, but I
would support one if someone else finds it important enough.

As I understand it, only the first proposal (where ARIN's version was
different than the rest) has been formally abandoned. The second
version (initiated at ARIN) is still pending but the other regions
aren't seriously considering it. That was as of a month or so ago, so
maybe something has changed.
