And due to that inability to come to any clear (to me) consensus
on whether more than incidental out-of-region use is acceptable
is the reason I feel that I have to oppose 2014-1 as written, as it
codifies in policy what is not clear (to me) is anywhere near a
consensus in the community.

In practice, I think that means that the current use of ARIN
as a RIR of last resort will continue by some.  That is also
a bad result.

I believe I have stated before that I believe that at least a
plurality of resources should be used in the region of the
RIR that provides them.  I am not in favor of ARIN becoming
yet again the one registry to rule them all, no matter what
ring we might forge for John.
