Mike - 

There are times when ARIN will start development of a draft policy before 
formal adoption if it is making obvious progress, and given the interest
in Inter-RIR transfers and recommendation of the ARIN AC, I believe that
starting development on 2011-1 implementation is now prudent. We have not
taken on any implementation planning prior to this point as we already 
quite a full plate.

I will be recommending to the Board that we proceed with implementation 
planning, even in advance of their formal policy adoption.  The Board 
may adopt 2011-1 (and direct ARIN to begin implementation) or decide 
that additional policy work is needed but still direct ARIN to begin 
implementation.  Due to the strong spirit of community for policy in 
this area, and given the amount of work ARIN needs to do, it is still 
reasonable that start the implementation planning work asap.  Clearly, 
processing inter-RIR transfers requests can't happen the Board has 
adopted the final policy in any case.

We will need a month or two to see if a interim manual implementation 
makes sense and will report back when we have some better insight into
the challenges involved.
