Happy New Year PPML!

 As one of the shepherds of this policy, it would be very helpful to hear
from the community on this proposal.  Comments for or against are welcome,
as are any questions.

You may want to read this report from RIPE Labs, specifically discussing
the existing policy, and tests they did on routability of small prefixes.

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-22
Removal of Minimum in Section 4.10

Date: 25 November 2014

Problem Statement:

The current section 4.10 Dedicated IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 Deployment
creates an issue where a small new organization that requires an IPv4
allocation or assignment would potentially receive a block that today would
be unroutable and therefore unusable for it intended purposes.

Policy statement:


"This block will be subject to a minimum size allocation of /28 and a
maximum size allocation of /24. ARIN should use sparse allocation when
possible within that /10 block."


"This block will be subject to an allocation of /24. ARIN should use sparse
allocation when possible within that /10 block."

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
