"Going forward, ARIN will not issue routing authorization that covers any
address space issued to others without community-developed policy that
specifically directs us to do so. "


"NRPM 11 was designed for parties requesting allocations from ARIN for
research purposes; not ARIN checking the quality/integrity of new block
received from IANA.  Given the recent occurance, I believe it is prudent
for ARIN to utilize NRPM 11 going forward for purposes of this quality
checking, as it makes visible the organization doing the testing/making
use of the space, including duration of the activity and research nature,
as well as reaffirming the expected uniqueness requirement."

I am accountable to the community and its elected Board for compliance.

Clarity in number resource policy is always helpful in alignment with community
expectation and compliance to same.
