For additional background and preparation, you should review review the
discussions surrounding ARIN policies 2008-2, 2008-8, and 2009-1, that
took place in the ARIN community more or less concurrently with APNIC's
discussion of its prop-50.

Compliance with another RIR's policies is nether a benefit nor necessary
in my opinion. However, harmony among the policies of the RIRs on a
global basis could be and I believe is a benefit. This is an important
nuance, you would do well to pay attention to it. :)

While I am yet to be convinced that the elimination of the needs basis
is the correct direction for the ARIN community; I want to personally
thank you for taking up the important challenge of leading the advocacy
for this position. I believe this is an important and necessary
discussion. Furthermore, I want to beseech the community as a whole
regardless to your opinion on this subject to participate in this
important debate and to do so in a respectful manner.
