I won't speak for the authors, but this proposed global policy is known 
as APNIC-Prop-097 in the APNIC region and was discussed at the APNIC 
meeting two weeks ago in Hong Kong, and on the APNIC sig-policy mailing 
list.  APNIC-Prop-097 was the second policy presented in the 4th session 
of APNIC's Policy SIG, on Thursday, Feb 24.  It was proceeded by the 
presentation of APNIC-Prop-086 which is equilivant to ARIN-2010-10, 
which is an alternate proposal for dealing with many of the same issues. 
  Once both proposals were presented, then a joint discussion of the two 
proposals followed.

As has been stated, Global Policies are how IANA policies are created 
and all Global Policies must go through each of the five RIR policy 

See the following for details;

I hope that helps;
