Bill,
While I appreciate your support of this policy, I'm a little confused about your statement as this policy doesn't even deal with allocations of a single /48. In fact, the current smallest prefix this policy deals with would be a /40 (13 sites qualifies for a /40 - and in fact that number was deliberately chosen because of that).
Cheers,
GTG

I see little difference I see between this policy and simply saying
that anyone willing to pay the fee for a /48 can have one. The only
notable difference is that under this policy a registrant may wish to
first hire a consultant sufficiently steeped in ARIN policy language
to properly phrase and exhibit his supporting documentation. I approve
of this and SUPPORT the draft as written.

Regards,
Bill Herrin
