Hi Kevin,

That matches my understanding of the already-board-approved draft
policy 2009-3. However, when evaluating proposal 131, ARIN staff
offered a radically different interpretation of 2009-3. Their
interpretation is that an ARIN policy which prevents the return of
legacy addresses to IANA (prop 131 version 3) conflicts with the
mandatory returns to IANA in draft policy 2009-3.

Hence proposal 135 which, in my opinion, does not alter 2009-3 in any
way. It merely clarifies the intended interpretation of 2009-3's
