In the predecessor to this, we suggested that there would be some discretion
with respect to staff deciding if an application was in good order at the
time of the reduction. In retrospect, that's not a good idea at least
without some criteria for them to be held to.

There are many reasons why an application may be in suspense at the time of
the reduction, including ARIN dawdling on responding, a surprise audit that
would complete successfully if the application were in an accepted stage,

Do you have any suggestions for some criteria that we might be able to
insert into the text to make this more palatable?
