My position is that the elected officials of ARIN are accountable to ARIN region and should only be concerned with securing
resources for use within ARIN.

As a practical matter, every region is going to have need far beyond supply but I am not comfortable with any policy which would
open the door to a decision that somehow another region's need is more important.

[WEG] This is exactly the sort of comment that when taken out of context (or possibly even *in* context) gives folks ammunition to
point to the fact that the ARIN community is being insular and that a more "neutral" body (say... the ITU) would be better equipped
to equitably manage this global resource.
I agree that we don't want to give preferential treatment to any other region, but you can't have it both ways. Either all regions
are on equal footing or by definition, you're saying that ARIN's needs are more important than any others. The reality is that the
whole notion of keeping ARIN resources for ARIN members is a sham, because there are going to be plenty of folks who are technically
members of another region (based on where their corporate offices are located) but will use the fact that they have some presence in
the US to justify space in ARIN since APNIC is effectively out. 

To the matter of the policy - I'm in support of it as written.
