Date: 2 May 2011

Policy statement:

Add to end of Section 8.1: "Note that an entity which is reorganizing
under any section of the US bankruptcy code (or foreign equivalent) is
not 'out of business' for the purpose of interpreting this section"


Potential confusion exists over the requirement to return address space
from a bankrupt entity. This is a needed clarification to the policy manual.
