I took the liberty or changing the subject to "Fair Distribution" in order
to make this a
completely separate thread allowing the other conversation to continue
(possibly at a later
time) without getting tangled up with this one.

Assuming this is true, then the section on stewardship and balancing allows
for the community  to find the right level, and modify ARIN policy

Personally, I'm hoping to see the staff assessment soon, and hoping we can
make a list
of all the current practices that would be modified if this draft policy is
and try to make sure the community aggress those practices should not change
and modify the draft accordingly.

I would not oppose the suggested text.

I'm not sure ordering matters... These are not stack ranked where the most
 principle is followed to the detriment of the others.  Hence the section
on stewardship
and suggestion of balancing.

But OK, if the community wants it to be #2 I see no issue.
