Should we abandon this Draft?

After the Chicago Public Policy Meeting, based upon the community's
suggestion that the AC continue to work on this Draft.  I sent an email to
PPML asking for support or opposition to this Draft and received just 2
responses....both in opposition.

I reiterate that PPML message below and once again ask for your support or
opposition. Failing to generate greater support for this Draft and given
that the AC has approximately 20 proposals and drafts on its docket.....I
plan to make a motion at the next AC monthly meeting recommending
abandoning this Draft Policy for lack of community support......

Now is your opportunity to convince the community that this a worthwhile
effort....or not.


Bill Darte
AC Shepherd for 2014-2

Draft Policy Issue:
Simply, the author wishes the Anti-Flip language currently used in the NRPM
to be relaxed, allowing an Inter-RIR transfer within their own organization
of previously existing addresses....though they may have received a new
allocation or assignment within the last 12 months.

Current draft language states that the organization may do such a transfer,
but may not use the actual addresses which were received from ARIN (or
through transfer) in the previous 12 months.  But they could therefore
transfer other resources holdings.

Request for feedback:
In order to further this discussion and gain a consensus, I would like to
once again ask the community to speak in favor or against this Draft Policy
so that it may be presented and discussed at our next Public Policy
Consultation at NANOG in June.

1. Yes or No.  Should the community relax existing policy which attempts to
limit the transfer of ARIN resources out of region, in order to allow an
organization flexibility to move address blocks to another portion of their
own organization in another region, even though they might have received
different addresses within ARIN in the last 12 months?

(Note current policy would still restrict availability of new addresses to
the organization for a period of 12 months after the transfer and is not
being changed by this draft).

2.  If YES above, are there any other qualifications or limits that should
be imposed on the resources transferred or the organization?

(Note that a vote of NO to question #1 would essentially ask the Advisory
Council to abandon this draft policy leaving existing policy in place.)

Thanks to all who continue to work within the community to exercise their
right and duty to craft appropriate policy guiding ARIN's important role in
Internet number resource management.
