I apologize for not understanding the boot-strap issue you refer to; 
however, if the intent of the austerity policy is primarily or solely to 
avoid a problem with the transfer rules, I'd prefer to fix the problem where 
it lies rather than patching it.


Hi Bill,

Perhaps you would consider support for 2014-14, which fixes the bootstrap 
issue in the transfer policy section?
It fixes many problems, and does so elegantly, with the addition of zero new 
sections in the NRPM.
It does this by harnessing the new conservative force of IPv4 price in 
exchange for the conservative power of hundreds of new NRPM words, many new 
sections, and more ARIN staff work.
Risks of IPv4 market manipulation are eliminated through the limit of a 
single /16 needs-free received per organization per year.
