Christine - 
  Thanks for your message! For clarity and to aid the folks who are working 
  on this policy proposal (Draft Policy ARIN-2014-9, which removes the need 
  for ARIN to seek utilization during M & M transfers), I take it that your 
  message is in support of adoption of the draft policy?
