Then to clarify the staff guidance, staff would like prop 131 to
indicate whether or not it intends to specify what addresses should be
returned to IANA under pending global policy 2009-3 (yes) and if so,
what addresses those are (none). This has nothing to do with
preempting or not preempting global policy, something an ARIN-local
policy like 131 can't do anyway.
