[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-127: Shared Transition Space for IPv4 Address Extension

Knowing how much content provider space is used by spammers (and is in my
e-mail gateways' blocklists), my guess is that content providers have lots
of IPv4 space to use to *host* content.  Spammers might find using IPv4
space more expensive.

This policy can't have a form which reduces my concerns of the eyeball
networks regaining large chunks of space while the content providers
will continue to dwindle. Unfortunately, it's too late in the game to
fix policies to favor protecting content networks (ie, eyeballs don't
have to utilize NAT444 if they don't want to and can request address
space until we are out, at which time they can convert, but the content
providers do not have any new tools to deal with migration on their
side). Trying to implement policy to deal with this unbalanced set of
tools at this point would only cause a fast rush to ARIN by eyeball
networks prior to policy ratification and defeat the purpose. As such,
there will be a time that content providers cannot offer IPv4, and their
competitors (especially eyeball networks who sideline content) will have
IPv4. We will have effectively killed the little guy.
