There has never been anything explicitly stated about this being a 
separate section of the NRPM,  Almost all of the discussion I find is in 
a context of 8.3 transfers, there was one mention of including IPv6, but 
it didn't get much traction that I see.  Further, there was a fairly 
long thread in May with the subject "Integrating Draft Policy 
ARIN-2011-1 into NRPM 8.3" and back at San Juan Bill's slides had much 
the same context.


The idea that this would not be integrated into 8.3 in one way or 
another is not supported by what I could find in the discussion anywhere.

I'll admit, we are making non-trivial changes to the text, we said that, 
that is why we did an Extended Last-Call.  But I believe it is what the 
community was asking us to do.

Finally, if the consensus of the community in last-call is to take it 
back to another PPM, I'm fine with that too.  However, that is not the 
sense of the room I took out of Philly.

I would really appreciate a clear consensus from the community on this 
one.  What do you want us to do?  Please comment, even if it is simply 
you support or not the text as written.
