[arin-ppml] IPv4 Transfer Policy Change to Keep Whois Accurate

I understand  you don't like the private DNS structure, but how does that 
relate to my proposal?

My statement that I think the private DNS is working was not related to my 
proposal, it was just a personal impression from my own personal experience 
in the DNS market, which includes transactions stretching from 1995 until 
today, and includes running production DNS servers throughout those years.

I have never made a proposal related to private registries, I am not 
interested in talking about private registries in the context of this 
Although I supported the idea of a decision on allowing private IP 
registries for the purposes of creating a freer trade in IP addresses, I 
decided that the same purpose could be served by modifying ARIN policy to 
allow needs-free transfers.
The talk about DNS registries is a side matter, unless you can relate them 
to my proposal.
I never held the DNS model as a "best or most shining example of what to 
hope for from a private numbering resource market".
I'm not even proposing a private numbering resource market.
