I support both the concept of this policy and the change. However, I am
concerned with the details of its implementation.
My interruption is that the new version calls for the current text of
4.4 to remain in place until "the equivalent of less than a /8 is left
in ALL inventory" and at that point the new text would be put in the
NRPM and the equilivant of a /15 would be reserved.
I think I would prefer, that the text be updated immediately and the
reservation be implemented at the stated trigger point. I believe the
way to achieve that outcome is to call for immediate implementation and
modify the text to include the trigger.
