[arin-ppml] Alternative to proposal 125: Requiring IPv6 planning for IPv4 allocations

The PDP main page is mute on the subject of whether or not they need to be public, saying only:

From: https://www.arin.net/policy/pdp.html
2.4 Discussion Petition

Any member of the community, including a proposal originator, may initiate a Discussion Petition if they are dissatisfied with the action taken by the Advisory Council regarding any specific policy proposal. If successful, this petition will change the policy proposal to a draft policy which will be published for discussion and review by the community on the PPML and at an upcoming public policy meeting.
The Discussion Petition must be initiated within 5 business days of announcement of the Advisory Council's decision regarding a specific policy proposal; the petition must include the proposal and a petition statement. The petition duration is 5 business days. The ARIN President determines if the petition succeeds (success is support from at least 10 different people from 10 different organizations). In order to be considered at an upcoming public policy meeting, the petition must be successfully completed at least 35 days prior to that meeting.
A successful petition may result in competing versions of the same draft policy. Staff and legal reviews will be conducted and published for successful petitions.
All draft policies that are selected by the Advisory Council or successfully petitioned are published for review and discussion on the public policy mailing list.

However, the petitions link off of that main PDP page says:

From: https://www.arin.net/policy/pdp_petitions.html
STARTING AND PARTICIPATING IN PETITIONS

ARIN staff posts the results of the AC’s decisions to the PPML shortly after the AC has met. The decisions which can be petitioned are specifically pointed out, and, the deadline for starting a petition is provided (five business days). Petitions take place on the PPML; those who wish to start a petition and/or participate in petitions must be subscribed to the list.
If you wish to petition a decision of the AC, send a message to PPML. The message must contain the proposal/draft policy text that you want to move forward and a petition statement. Point of contact information is also required, either to the entire PPML or topetition at arin.net.
Should a petition begin, ARIN staff will acknowledge the petition by posting to the thread, and indicate when the petition period will end (once started, a petition’s duration is five business days).
If you wish to support a petition, simply post a statement of support to PPML on the petition thread. Point of contact information is also required, either to the entire PPML or to petition at arin.net.

So I'm not sure where you come up with the idea that is not what the PDP says.

It is, indeed what the ARIN web site says under the PDP.

I, personally, think that given the low (10 people from 10 organizations) threshold
for a petition to succeed that requiring those 10 people to support it in public
is a perfectly reasonable requirement.
