This would essentially be a sunset-clause, we had issues the last time 
we tried on of those.  I'm not saying we can't or shouldn't do it but 
that I want more input before I add one into this policy.

Note: we can't adopt this after Barbados it has to come back to the 
policy consultation at NANOG in June as a Recommended Draft Policy 
before it can be adopted.
