So you believe it's in the interest of those of us who have signed RSAs and LRSAs to subsidize (through our annual fees) those who want free registry services even though they refuse to adhere to the number resource policy in our region. That policy, in part, requires that the recipient of a legacy resource transfer, who  by definition cannot be a legacy allocation recipient, sign an RSA and contribute toward the cost of providing those registry services.

This is actually becoming an interesting discussion, and I don't 
necessarily want to squelch it.  Also, I thank Marty for bringing this 
change of RIPE policy to our community's attention.

However, I want to remind everyone we have nine Draft Policies of our 
own on the ARIN policy docket, they were discussed at the NANOG-PPC this 
week.  But, the AC can always use more feedback.  So, please remember to 
take some time to review and comment on the Draft Policies on the ARIN 
policy docket, especially if we did not get your feedback during the 
NANOG-PPC this week.

There is only two short months before ARIN 33 in Chicago, and the AC 
needs to lock down text for any Recommended Draft Policies 30 days 
before the meeting.  So we need your feedback real soon now.
