So in effect, all the proposed 3.6.4 does is to formalize what is the 
current practice of allowing the change.  Thus, there should be no 
problems with the change.

(At least once because the phone company changed our area code, once because the Post Office changed our ZIP code, and one of our original POCs retired and I changed our company's administrative POC as a result.)  I've also changed our rDNS server addresses several times over the years. If it makes any difference, I have been responding to the annual "please validate your POC information" email from ARIN.
