Hi Jeffrey,

In the general sense, I'm fine with that approach. However, I'm very
much against ARIN pursuing it unilaterally and I'm very much against
registry shopping.

If we want to manage addresses this way, we should first endeavor to
pass a globally coordinated policy to the effect that multiregional
organizations should solicit the registry in their headquarters'
region for all registry-direct number resources rather than soliciting
the registry that serves the region where the resources are employed.
