"As far as John's comment, this proposal began with a suggestion that
changed the v4 requirement as well, making both "more than 16" networks or
IPv4 addresses.  Since changing the v4 language from 8 addresses to more
than 16 addresses was clearly not desired by the community, the v4 language
was removed from the draft.  The comments still reflect that the equality
of the policy between v4 and v6 was the original idea.  You are correct
that this draft now is only about changing the v6 part.  Are you suggesting
that the older portions of description that are no longer in it, due to the
community input needs to be removed?"

Needs? No. The older parts of the problem statement referencing V4 and
disparity are, in my view, vestigial and irrelevant at best, but do not
actively disqualify the Draft Proposal from being technically sound and
enabling fair and impartial number policy. It may be felt that the older
parts need to remain to somehow entice further community support. I don't
think that is optimum, but whatever.

At this point, I think it would be cleaner to modify the Problem Statement
and Author Comments to reflect only the current Policy statement intent,
but that is not my decision. I am still, somewhat reluctantly, in support.
