not exactly:

12.5 Call the question: Shared IPv4 Prefix for Carrier Grade NAT deployments


was one place it was discussed...

another was


previously it had a pass at the IESG

I don't have the minutes associated with that, the area director said
the following:

Dan Romanescu -  IESG has a draft on the table, pending a couple
discusses, that says don’t do this, straw poll in IESG.  Soon to be an
RFC.  The IESG would object to this.

There is what I would characterize as hostility in some camps mine
included to creating new private scope address ranges out of existing
public scope ranges.
