The AC would appreciate your feedback on this new draft policy. 

This draft grew out of a conversation at the San Diego NANOG meeting
where it was noted that current policy allows the transfer of IPv4
addresses which are issued to critical infrastructure or as IPv6
transition space.  It was suggested by the authors that this was not
intended and that there are negative consequences of allowing these
transfers to occur. 

Do you support this draft policy?  If not, are there changes that could
be made that would allow you to support it.
