As part of trying to get staff input into the process earlier (as 
discussed earlier in the week on this list), please note:

1) The policy proposal suggests "Potential confusion exists over the 
   requirement to return address space from a bankrupt entity. This is
   a needed clarification to the policy manual" whereas this language 
   has not resulted in any actual confusion for ARIN staff.

2) ARIN must handle bankruptcies in compliance with appropriate law;
   encoding a specific legal approach within policy is both ill-advised 
   and inconsistent with the Policy Development Process which states 
   that ARIN business practices are not policy matters.
