I support this proposal, and I believe it would simplify the text of 6.5.7.

As one of the shepherds for ARIN-2011-3, I'd like to provide some context;

ARIN-2011-3 originally had requirement for return that was removed in 
the last-call process.  With a return requirement it made sense to keep 
the original text allowing /35 recipients to move to /32 without return. 
  I honestly don't recall if it was simply an oversight that we didn't 
change the text to replace 6.5.7 or if we did it that way to minimize 
the changes made in last call.  However, the modified ARIN-2011-3 called 
for the text to be added to the section and not replace the section, so 
to be clear ARIN Staff implemented ARIN-2011-3 as instructed by the policy.

Thanks Andrew.
