On second thought, I withdraw my support and oppose the policy draft
as written. While I approve of the policy in concept, the draft
commits two errors which should be rectified before it goes to the

First, it "replaces" large sections of text to which there is no
obvious modification. This lacks clarity, making it needlessly
difficult to understand what the draft actually changes. The draft
should be winnowed to just the text which changes.

Second, it renumbers existing to and then replaces with text which is not derivative of the original. This is
bad practice, as it confuses external references to the NRPM. Indeed,
ARIN's normal practice has been to retire rather than replace or
reorder section numbers which no longer serve their original function.

With those two changes made, I believe I would support the draft.
