You're welcome.

Which to be honest, is embarrassing. Almost all of them were focused on
moving deck chairs with respect to IPv4 and competing for who could write a
better proposal. It was like watching dueling banjos for the most part.

But I did also suggest that we might want to adopt something like RIPE-605
since this thread is likely to conclude "game over" with respect to the
arguments around property and rights.

I plan to submit a modified version of 605 RSN.
