I had written a draft on this topic and suggested such a "sunset date",
but I cannot see it in the archives, so I must have never sent it.  My

Would it make the policy more acceptable for those that really
believe that the CRTC can (and should, and will) change the regs
in such ways to ensure the incumbents not "game the system"
(the CRTC regs and ARIN), and to still enable competition now,
to add in a sunset date on this policy?.  Given the time it takes
for (most) Government agencies to enact new regs, I suspect
that date will need to be a number of years.  Unfortunately,  I
suspect such kicking of the can down the road is likely to
generate a new proposal to extend the sunset date (and given
how long some ARIN policies take to percolate, might also have
to be proposed on the date this proposal was implemented :-)
