We need to think about who should be eligible to receive resources from
ARIN, and what that nexus should be to receive resources.
I think there are two part to the nexus;
1. Legal Presence - current operational practice is legally formed
within the region.
2. Technical/Operational Presence - this is not currently well defined
in policy or operational practice.
But, I'll note we currently have initial allocation policies that you
need to meet in order to qualify to receive an allocation. What if we
constrained these initial allocation requirements to be from within the
This would define a minimum Technical/Operational Presence needed within
the region, that is the same amount within the region, for both ARIN
region only networks and trans-regional networks.
Currently, trans-regional networks have a theoretical advantage over
ARIN region only networks, the trans-regional networks can qualify to
get resources with a smaller or no foot print within the region.
This change seems like a reasonably fair way to ensue everyone getting
resources from ARIN qualifies to receive resources using the same
resource footprint within the ARIN Region. Essentially, out of region
need can only be considered for a larger than minimum initial allocation
or for subsequent allocations.
You could maybe even require that the minimum allocation must be support
by in region need and out of region need can only be considered for a
larger than minimum allocation for initial or subsequent allocations.
This would ensure there is some minimum need within the ARIN region for
all allocations. I'm my opinion, this is consistent with the idea that
ARIN's primary role is allocating resources for use within the ARIN
region, but there is still a secondary role for allocating resources for
out of region use as well.
What do people think of these concepts?
