[arin-ppml] About needs basis in 8.3 transfers

Never claimed they were.  However, Steven stated
that even one transfer not being recorded in the
database was unacceptable.  We now learn that
accuracy is not actually a fundamental principal.

I will choose to dismiss such assertions in the
future as being a distraction from the real issues
being discussed.


Hi Gary,

Accuracy is indeed a fundamental principle of our stewardship, and an 
argument in support of 2014-14.
Just because Steven won't leap to your command to submit a proposal to your 
liking regarding reclamation (not a right of ARIN anyway, per the current 
RSA), you can't reasonably dismiss the argument that retaining the needs 
tests works against the fundamental principle of registry accuracy.

If you want to offer such a proposal, I would give it serious consideration 
as I feel valid contacts are a key function of the registry, but I don't 
think we can create policy to reclaim legacy blocks for invalid contacts.
