Bill - 

  Absolutely no policy proposal is necessary; Draft Policy 2011-5
  has been recommended for adoption by the ARIN AC for adopted, and 
  the Board asked that we consult with the IAB before implementation.
  The AC sent it to the Board, and now the Board has to determine 
  what is most appropriate for the organization, as is its proper
  role when it comes to ARIN's relation with other Internet bodies.
