David - 

   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.
