It's interesting that you acknowledge that the membership has told
ARIN to stop futzing around with Section 12. I, and many others in the
past version of this "proposal" agree. And we are still doing it.

This proposal is on-going for almost a year
https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2011_7.html and a small AC
minority appear to disagree and battle on regardless of what the
community wants. In this case, we're being protected from ourselves.

"To date the community has not documented or firmly established use of
