The authors of proposal 2011-01 (GPP-IPv4-2011) do not intend to take
over the IETF's
role in assigning internet resources.

The IANA Staff analysis asks for an assertion from the NRO instead of
a revision to the policy text.  During discussions with the ARIN
Advisory Council, it was mentioned that the clarification requires a
text change to the proposal.  It was also mentioned that the ASO,
instead of the NRO, must provide the clarification.  To avoid any
doubt, the authors of the proposal would appreciate if the ASO or the
NRO, whichever is the appropriate party, can clarify that.
