Only the Staff Assessment for the 22 September 2011 version of Draft 
Policy 2011-1 found language which was categorized as "unclear, vague, 
and is wide open for interpretation."

Bill - By providing new policy text via petition, you were indeed seeking
a mechanism presently not in Policy Development Process.

If the ARIN AC abandoned or made changes to a draft policy that you 
disagree with, then you may petition against that action.  If your
goal is to substitute your own text for the draft policy, that would
be best done by submitting a new policy proposal for consideration. 
The AC would consider that new proposal and have the option of moving
forward with it instead of the current 2011-1.  While it is possible 
for the AC to abandon your version, you could always petition that
action to insure that your proposal text makes it to the Public Policy 
Meeting for community consideration.
