On February 15th, the following update to staff assessment was

It is clear to me that ARIN can make this assignment with 
the consent of the IAB, but it is not clear that we may do
so without such consent.  I simply note that there exists 
a non-zero chance that this draft policy may encounter some
atypical implementation issues.  This is not a statement in 
favor or opposed, but simply a fact for the community to be 
aware for purposes of setting appropriate expectations.
