I noted it as an option because it is the mailing list documented for
that purpose in the suggestion process.

We shall obtain such information.

The arin-consult mailing list is specifically for handling suggestions
and is open to the general public. That does not preclude discussion on
arin-ppml, but we have had complaints in the past of too much non-policy
traffic on PPML and hence made arin-consult list specifically for suggestions.
You will note that there has been no suggestion that arin-ppml is inappropriate
for such a purpose over the discussions of that last two days; it is simply
a question of how the community wishes to organize its discussions; one
omnibus list or a distinct list for operational and organization matters
which are not number resource policy development.
