[arin-ppml] ARIN 2014-13

Gary’s suggestion notwithstanding, if 2014-13 goes thru and then my proposal were to go thru, all that would have been accomplished would be that a /24 could be allocated without needs tests once per year.  While that would slightly better than it is today, a /24 will only help the smallest of Organizations.  I don’t want to see the Organizations that need the size of a /22 or a /24 to find it harder to get an allocation because of 2014-13 and if the needs test remain that is exactly what would happen.

As I’ve said many times before the existing policies are stacked against small Organizations and I’m trying to remedy the inequity of that.  In my view 2014-13 in its current form makes the problem worse and not better and I cannot support it in its current form.  I would however support it if the language is changed to use a range of /20 down to /24 where the current policy says /20, and a range of /22 down to a /24 where the current policy says a /22.

John I think it would be a great thing for you and the board to finally acknowledge that it is harder for a small Organization to get an allocation than larger ones and it is inherently unfair  - and this Community need to address that inequity.

Its more complicated than that.  I’ve submitted the proposed policy change below to the AC.  Obviously at this early stage I don’t know if the Community will accept this or not but 2014-13 complicates this proposal.

Steven -

   That may be the case (that 2014-13 would complicate your policy proposal), but that is not
   equivalent to "making it harder for Organizations to get blocks that are larger than a /24".

   As far as the staff can determine, 2014-13 will not impact ability for parties to obtain larger
   blocks, as the established criteria and guidelines for initial requests larger than /24 will still
   be used.  It would definitely allow issuance of address space (of /24 size) to organizations
   that would presently not qualify under current number resource policy.
