I do take this policy seriously and even support it.  But without 
reciprocal policy at another RIR this is actually an irrelevant piece of 
policy.  So unless there is some sign of another RIR taking up the 
issue, I believe the ARIN community has more important and timely issues 
to work on.

As a sign of good faith to the other RIRs I'd be willing to take this on 
the docket, I don't want to send the message we're not interested, like 
I said I support this.   However, without some sign of another RIR 
taking up the issue, I couldn't in good faith prioritizes this over 
other policy issues.  I'm not saying it can't or won't get worked on, 
but that just about everything else should probably take priority over 
it, unless there is activity on the issue in another RIR.
