Milton - 

Note that NRPM Section 12 provides only that "ARIN may review the current usage 
of any resources maintained in the ARIN database." - it would not appear that 
this language provides ARIN the ability to request information and utilization 
on resources held in other regions, as envisioned by the present 2014-1 draft 
policy text.

If you wish to drop the language pertaining to obtaining a list of applicants
number resources and rely on NRPM 12 for this purpose instead, then it would
appear necessary to revise NRPM 12's scope to cover resources held outside of 
the region.  This community may want to carefully consider the merits and 
issues with each potential approach before deciding one way or the other.
