Hello PPML,

Some changes are being considered in the text of prop-151, and I would
like to solicit some feedback. The modifications are summarized below
along with the resulting text. Given the conversations surrounding 2011-1,
it seems like a good time to continue the discussion with this text.

Changes to the original text:

- Removed the suggestions to altering the text of the RSA.

- Removed the section regarding "Conditions on the IPv4 address block".

- Removed the condition of space being administered by ARIN to open the
possibility of inter-RIR transfers.

- Moved the minimum transfer size requirement down to remaining

Resulting text:

Replace Section 8.3 with

8.3 ARIN will process and record IPv4 address transfer requests.

Conditions on source of the transfer:

* The source entity must be the current rights holder of the
IPv4 address resources, and not be involved in any dispute as to
the status of those resources.

* The source entity will be ineligible to receive any further IPv4
address allocations or assignments from ARIN for a period of 12
months after the transfer, or until the exhaustion of ARIN's
IPv4 space, whichever occurs first.

* The source entity must not have received an allocation from
ARIN for the 12 months prior to the transfer.

* The minimum transfer size is a /24

Conditions on recipient of the transfer:

* The recipient entity must be a current ARIN account holder.

* The recipient must sign an RSA with ARIN.

* The recipient entity of the transferred resources will be subject
to current ARIN policies. In particular, in any subsequent ARIN
IPv4 address allocation request, the recipient will be required
to account for the efficient utilization of all IPv4 address
space held, including all transferred resources.

* If the recipient has already received the equivalent of a /12
of addresses in the prior 12 months, the recipient must
demonstrate the need for additional resources in the exact amount
which they can justify under current ARIN policies.

* The minimum transfer size is a /24

and add to the NRPM Section 12:

10. ARIN will not use utilization as a measure of policy compliance
for addresses transferred under 8.3.
