Opposed.  Apparently stuck in a mail queue someplace since last April.

> ARIN-prop-129: IPv4 Addresses for Process Participants
> Proposal Originator: Matthew Kaufman
> Proposal Version: 1
> Date: 21 January 2011
> Proposal type: New
> Policy term: Permanent
> Policy statement:
>    Upon receipt of that last IPv4 /8 from IANA, ARIN shall distribute
> one quarter (a single /10) of the space immediately to "active
> participants" in the ARIN policy development process.
>    An "active participant" for this purpose is defined as an
> who expresses support for OR objection to this proposal.
>    Each "active participant" shall receive a single block of the same
> size, the size chosen so as to maximally use the /10 allocated for
> purpose, but in no case shall the block be smaller than /24. No more
> than one such block shall be distributed per organization if a single
> organization has more than one "active participant".
>    In the case where the number of "active participants" exceeds the
> number of minimum-sized (/24) blocks available, priority shall be
> to those who responded first.
> Rationale:
>    In order to accelerate IPv6 deployment, it is critical that IPv4
> space be consumed as rapidly as possible.
>    Several possible approaches exist. One would be to distribute the
> final space proportionately to existing assignment size. Another might
> be to randomly assign the remaining space. Yet another might be to
> award
> the space based on merit, after reviewing possible uses for the final
> IPv4 space.
>    This proposal instead simply consumes some of the remaining space
> directly rewarding the participants in the policy development process
> for their participation.
> Timetable for implementation: Immediate
