Owen - 

  Upon adoption, Draft Policy 2011-5 requires that a contiguous /10 IPv4  
  block be reserved for this purpose.

  If adopted, ARIN-prop-154 would also require that a contiguous /10 IPv4  
  block be reserved for this purpose.

  If 2011-5 hadn't been recommended to the ARIN Board of Trustees, then I
  could see the ARIN AC accepting ARIN-prop-154 on the docket and merging
  it with the draft policy. (I would at that time advise against language
  not germane to Internet number resource management of the address block,
  but that's another issue)

  As it is, with 2011-5 recommended for adoption, the ARIN AC has given the
  question to the ARIN Board of Trustees.  Since the question also deals 
  with issues such as how we respect existing relationships with other 
  organizations while still meeting the needs of the community, it is 
  actually quite appropriate that the ARIN Board deliberate on the matter.

  You are free to recommend any course of action as you see fit.
