The text that was presented at the meeting was flawed seriously and acknowledge to be so.  Many of those speaking at the microphones agreed that the text was flawed but expressed support for an Inter-regional transfer policy.

I believe that slide 8 was the basis for the first polling question after the DP was presented and had overwhelming consensus.
The re-written version of the DP which was crafted in the AC meeting expresses the will of the community (I believe) and incorporates all of the same elements that were itemized as the intent of the flawed text on Slide 6 of the same set of slides you reference below.  I would be interested to hear how you believe the current text deviates substantially from those objectives.

The mandate of the community was for the AC to proceed to make good policy in this area (I believe) and the AC has a duty to do so.  I believe that the current text is faithful to both.  

But, I respect your hard work and interpretation, and like you I'm sure...hope that the rest of community will weigh in during this last call period to express their opinion...having heard yours and mine...and tell us whether what the AC has crafted is worthy of being sent to the BoT for acceptance.

I agree with you, the process has failed at least from an integrity
perspective.  The last call text presented in this thread should not
be allowed to propagate under the cover of community blessing. What
was presented in Philadelphia was this:


Slide 8 is the basis that is being used to claim that the community
has empowered the AC. The last call text was neither publicly
presented or polled in the public policy meeting. A completely
different and unrelated question was asked that had very narrow
consensus. There is no mandate to proceed as some have claimed.

The last call text presented in this thread was primarily written
during the AC meeting. Even if it isn't formally in violation of the
PDP, it's poorly thought out, ill defined shotgun policy that didn't
need to be written and rushed through in the manner that is has been.
No-one on the AC is able to clearly articulate why this was necessary.
Including myself. The AC meeting minutes will paint an even  messier
picture supporting my contention.

A successful petition would continue to emphasize that we expect that
ARIN will implement critical, business impacting policy in an open,
transparent and fair way. I would certainly consider supporting one.

I certainly appreciate the hard work of my colleagues.
