Personally I'd be fine with this for IPv4, however this would put many
currently operating networks in violation of policy. How do you resolve
that? what about legacy space? Do you want them to transfer the
resources they are currently using out of region to the other RIRs as
appropriate? Then we will run into the issues surrounding ARIN-2014-2.
Now IPv6, this means multinational companies will need separate
allocations from each RIR that they function within that RIR's region.
It will be common for most multinational companies to need 3 or 4
separate allocations then, that will bloat the IPv6 route table. In
IPv6 we are trying to minimize the number of non-aggregatable prefixes
allocated, that is why we are doing sparse allocation for IPv6.
I suppose, you could allow big allocation from one RIR, and then hove
them transfer part to the other RIRs, but if you do that why not just
allow it to be registered at the allocating RIR and be done with it.
It's a nice simple statement, but it doesn't work.
