In practice, I just do not think you can keep that cat
bagged over the time frame of IETF deliberations.
The real question would be would anyone use that
/10, knowing that they could be at some risk should it
eventually be used for a real assignment/allocation.

Is there any sense of the ARIN board as to whether they
could decide to decide at their next meeting whether to
direct a reservation of a final /10, based on the communities
support of 2011-5, so that when the IETF process
completes its work ARIN will be in a position to contribute
that /10 (should the IETF result be aligned with 2011-5)?
