The changes that occur to a draft policy text after presentation 
at the public policy meeting can be quite extensive and include 
any action including rewriting, merging, or abandoning. I believe 
that you are seeing the result of a "rewrite" of the draft policy,
and this is noted as specifically allowed by the PDP for policies
after PPM, with the protection being that any change results in 
another last call to the community.

Note also that you do have the option to petition for the original 
policy text to be sent to last call, if you do not like the action
taken by the ARIN AC on the draft policy.
