6 of 16 respondents in favor, 9 opposed, 1 did not offer an answer
that could be interpreted as support or opposition.

14 of 16 respondents used language that could reasonably be
interpreted as supporting sustainable allocation as a principle,
independent of the "needs" question. 1 offered language opposed.

8 of 11 respondents could be reasonably understood to favor
conservation as a principle. 3 were opposed.

> 2) Do you support the principle of hierarchical aggregation (Routability)?

5 of 16 respondents favor, 11 of 16 oppose heirarchy, aggregation or
both as a principle but are not necessarily against its current

14 of 16 used various language to express a view that supporting
routing scalability is an appropriate principle. 2 offered the view
that ARIN activity should not be informed by routing issues.

Unanimously favorable response.

7 of 16 support, 8 of 16 oppose, 1 non-answer. Most answers were
nuanced such that the yeses were conditional on the respondent's
unique interpretation of the word stewardship and the no's were along
the lines of "define this better."
