While not policy text this is still more about the solution than the 
problem.  There needs to be more about why "requiring pre-existing PA" 
creates undesirable results for example, or how current policy effects 
new ISPs businesses in undesirable ways.  A problem statement needs to 
motivate why change is necessary as well as how to solve it.  So, what's 
wrong with the current policy?  Not just what should the new policy look 
like.  In the above I mostly only see what should the new policy look 
like and almost nothing about issues created by the current policy.
