Hi Joe,

Perhaps if you more fully explain how this policy change would deal
with the lack of uptale of 4byte ASN (how specifically it differs from
current ARIN practice and how those changes "Promote 4byte ASN Usage")
more folks would be more in favor of it (and of your petition). I
personally have not been able to parse that myself and so it may be
possible that others are in the same boat. Just a thought.
