I was the primary author, the AC participated in its editing and then
voted on it.

Not. I agree, the /10 for cable operators should have never been set
aside so you can't really lump everyone into that fur ball. I wrote
the carve out for CI and that's temporary.  Because we are failing to
transition, we still need to be able to move the traffic to the
benefit of all. Compelling. The carve out you proposed is effectively
an infrastructure subsidy that would only further drag transition. Not

There was a table topic at the PHL meeting about this and it was
unanimous that ARIN should not be working on v4 policy or as little as
practical. I've also heard that consistently at the mic and on the
list. I think that's right.
