It is probably best to reduce this the actual updates.

Here is the new, or updated, text:

Rationale:

    The policy provides a mechanism for the ongoing distribution of
    IPv4 address space, while removing the areas that have been
    problematic in previous attemts at this proposal. The proposal:

     - Permits regional variation in runout policy amongst RIRs to
       be accounted for in the distribution of the Recovered IPv4 Pool

     - Prevents the possibility of a single RIR being eligible to
       be allocated the entire Recovered IPv4 Pool in the first
       (and perhaps only) allocation period

     - Removes two areas of policy that have failed to reach
       agreement in previous attempts at this proposal:

        - How addresses should be placed in the Recovered IPv4 Pool
        - References to how transfers should or should not take
          place


To be even more clear, what was added was:

The NRO must clarify that this Global Policy is not intended to
supersede the IETF’s right to make IPv4 assignments for
“specialised address blocks (such as multicast or anycast
blocks)” as documented in section 4.3 of RFC 2860. The
NRO and IANA should coordinate with the IETF to make such
assignments as necessary, and honor any reservations made
for works currently in progress.

Comment on this change:

It appears that this new text is intended to act as an "asterisk" to the
policy which does in fact attempt to change it's meaning "after the fact";
it has already been passed in other regions without this asterisk. Some
might be tempted to argue that the rationale wouldn't be considered, but
then why add it if it wasn't needed to "clarify" the proposal after adoption
in other regions?


Best,
