Dear PPML,

ARIN-2016-4 was accepted as a Draft Policy in June.

https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2016_4.html

Expressions of support or opposition to the DP are solicited to assist in
evaluating what to do with it in the run up to the meeting in Dallas.

At the moment, it appears technically sound and fair to me, but expressions
of support will be required to advance.

Thank you in advance.

John Springer
