Scott,

I believe the text is officially out of Mike Joseph's and my control... but
to answer your question...

I am suggesting we take one of the three edits as a modification to the
draft, so it would be the whole draft with some minor difference to what
text in the current 8.3 and 8.4 gets removed, or restated.

For clarity I will provide what the policy statement of draft could look
like with the option 2 modification:

Policy statement:

Remove the following section 8.3 text:
 "> The recipient must demonstrate the need for up to a 24-month supply
  of IP address resources under current ARIN policies and sign an
  RSA.
  > The resources transferred will be subject to current ARIN policies."

 with:

"> Recipients will be subject to current ARIN policies and sign an RSA for
the resources being received."

Remove the following section 8.4 text:

"Recipients within the ARIN region must demonstrate the need for up to a
24-month supply of IPv4 address space."


Add:

8.3.1 New ORGs

8.3.1.1 End-Sites
End-user organizations which do not currently hold IP addresses, and can
demonstrate 50% immediate utilization by currently held equipment, will
immediately qualify for a non-M&A transfer between the minimum assignment
size and a /24, inclusive.

8.3.1.2 ISPs
ISP organizations which do not currently hold IP addresses, and can
demonstrate 50% immediate utilization by currently held equipment, current
customers, or customer orders will immediately qualify for a non-M&A
transfer between the minimum allocation size and a /21, inclusive.

8.3.2 Existing ORGs

8.3.2.1 Minimum requirements
Prior to qualifying for non-M&A address transfers, an organization must
demonstrate an average of 80% utilization, as measured under section 4,
across the aggregate of all addresses that are currently allocated,
assigned, reallocated, or reassigned to, or otherwise in use by, the
organization.

8.3.2.2 Transfer Approval
An organization which qualifies for transfers under one of the criteria in
8.3.2.3 shall be approved for the transfer in of an aggregate amount of
address space as determined by the relevent section. An organization with
such an approval may then complete one or more transfers, with a cumulative
total not exceeding the approved amount, without submitting additional
justification. An organization will be ineligible for additional non-M&A
transfers until it can again demonstrate that it meets the minimum
requirements in section 8.3.2.1.

8.3.2.3 Qualifying Criteria

8.3.2.3.1 Stable Growth
Organizations may be approved for the non-M&A transfer of additional
address space equal to the amount of address space they were holding at the
time of approval.

8.3.2.3.2 Rapid Growth
Organizations may be approved for the non-M&A transfer of additional
address space equal to 24 times the organization's calculated monthly
average use rate.

8.3.2.3.2.1 Calculation of Monthly Average Use Rate
An organization may choose a look-back window of any number of months
between 3 and 12, inclusive, from the date of the current request. ARIN
will calculate the total amount of new addresses acquired, during the
look-back window, by the organization from non-M&A transfers, direct
allocations or assignments from ARIN, or reallocations or reassignments
from an ISP. That total will be divided by the number of months in the
look-back window to calculate the organization's monthly average use rate.

8.3.2.3.2.2 Returned IP space
If addresses are returned or transferred out within the look-back window,
then those addresses will be subtracted from the total amount of new
addresses acquired for the purposes of the monthly average use rate
calculation.

8.3.2.3.2.3 M&A activity
If M&A transfer activity occurs during the look-back window, the addresses
acquired through M&A transfers will only be counted in the total amount of
new addresses acquired if the pre-M&A organization had acquired the
resources during the post-M&A organization's look-back window.

8.4.1 -- Same text as 8.3.1

Timetable for implementation: Immediate


Hope this helps.
