Thank you John!

So Gary: I understand your meta point. I am all for clarity and ease-of-use in the NRPM.  As an AC member, I hope to drive the NRPM to more and more “easiness”.

But (and perhaps I’m wrong), I feel that EU v6 policy is pretty needs-free and easy.  You have 5 clauses to qualify under, and clause e) really is the ‘catch-all” bucket for “everything else”, including the case you brought up.

But “something quite so fuzzy” is your interpretation, not ARIN’s.   So let’s get ARIN’s interpretation and try and take the fuzziness out of the equation.

Question for ARIN:  In the general (normal) case when an application is made for EU v6 under clause e) and there’s a technical explanation for why they want RIR-issued space, will the application be approved ?

Yes, so long as a technical explanation is provided.   NRPM provides a
list of several situations that would warrant direct end-user IPv6 assignment,
and others are accepted as well so long as a reasonable technical justification
is provided.
