Hi Andrew,

How would that alleviate the concerns raised in the March legal
assessment? As I understood it, they boiled down to:

1. Permitted use of addresses outregion could subject ARIN to the
legal jurisdiction in the myriad localities where the addresses are
used. Dealing with that could be super expensive and could distract
and draw resources away from ARIN's core function: managing addresses
for use in-region.

2. ARIN is bound by ICP-2 which is at least nominally contrary to
outregion use of ARIN-managed addresses. Changes or clarifications to
ICP-2 would be desired in order to proceed with an explicit outregion
policy more permissive than, "no."

The _fraction_ of use in presumptively non-permitted ways doesn't seem
to be at issue.
