As the primary AC shepherd on this proposal, I'd like to propose
modifying ARIN-prop-157 as follows:

Title: ASN transfers
Policy statement:
In NRPM 8.3, replace "IPv4 number resources" with "IPv4 number
resources and ASNs".
There are legitimate use cases for transferring ASNs, and no
significant downsides (identified to date) of allowing it.

In my personal opinion, that would preserve the essential feature of
the policy that has shown some support on PPML, while alleviating most
of the concerns.


If you expressed support for ARIN-prop-157, do you still support the
revised text?
If you opposed the original draft of ARIN-prop-157, is this text any
better (or worse)?
Do you feel the AC should move this proposal forward to a public policy meeting?
