Subject: [arin-ppml] ARIN Draft Policy 2017-1: Clarify Slow Start for
Transfers proposed updates
The ARIN Draft Policy 2017-1 shepherds working with the original author have
updated the problem statement and added clarification to section 8.5.5. The
AC would like feedback on the proposed updated problem statement and
modification to 8.5.5. We encourage community members to comment on the
Problem Statement (revised):

projections (that are now required under NRPM section 8 for purposes of
transfer request approval) and prefer that there be available a more certain
approach based solely on extrapolation of their existing IPv4 number usage
And adding the following text to the end of 8.5.5
Organizations may qualify for an additional block by using a projection of
their address use from 6-24 months of allocations or assignments just prior
to the transfer request.
