In the past I've heard a distinction made between a global policy (under
the MOU, related to IANA) and a globally coordinated policy (all RIRs agree
on a policy but it only governs RIR behavior). However, in this particular
case, at this particular time, neither applies to ARIN-2013-4. The global
options could be explored now or in the future if folks so desire.

Thanks for clarifying Cathy!
