Hi David,

Then my view is the same as it was for this draft's predecessors: so
long as we all understand that pending further policy development, the
IP addresses we expect ARIN to return to IANA is a null set, I am in
favor of advancing this draft. Should staff understand this draft to
have a contrary impact then I am opposed.
