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.
