Hi Jason,

Two quick points:

I think goals 1 and 3 from
are pretty reasonable as written. Are you open to abandoning your text
in favor of that text?

Hierarchy is still a dead duck. If you want to talk sensibly about the
registry's role in routing, start with the need for routing
scalability. Then make the dual points that BGP scales only through
aggregation at the source and that the registry doesn't set routing
policy, ISPs do. Then stop. Leave hierarchy out of it.
