I'm not sure what you're asking.

The people this policy change protects currently have no IPv4 space (as 
if they did they'd be processed under the policy which does have the 
12-month exemption), but will need to acquire some after ARIN runout. I 
have yet to see a single person who appears like they might fall into 
that category post on the list this week.
