[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2017-9: Clarification of Initial Block Size for IPv4 ISP Transfers

Looking back, I note that I have not made an ISP initial IPv4
request after 02/21/2017 when the policy was changed.
My previous ISP initial IPv4 requests asked for a
3 month, 12 month, and 18 month projection.
I assumed this was to comply with "184.108.40.206.3. Three Months"
that existed until 02/21/2017.
Was this information used prior to 02/21/2017?
Is this information used since 02/21/2017?
Or is it ignored and collected only because the
initial ISP IPv4 request uses the same form as the
"220.127.116.11.3. Three Months" disappeared on 02/21/2017
That version was modified by:
2016-4 replaces section 4.2.2 text.
It does not clearly state that it
replaces, removes, or modifies
any of the sub sections.
18.104.22.168. ISP Requirements
22.214.171.124.1. Use of /24
126.96.36.199.2. Efficient Utilization
188.8.131.52.3. Three Months
184.108.40.206.4. Renumber and Return
220.127.116.11. [Section Number Retired]
I never noticed that the sub-section disappeared
and assumed 2016-4 only changed the 4.2.2
When I voiced my support for the 2016-4 it was
with the understanding that (at that time):
An ISP without a direct IPv4 block would
automatically qualify for a /24, (without needing
to go to an upstream and get IPv4 space and
pressing it into service).
Furthermore an ISP without a direct IPv4 block
could get more than a /24 so long as it was did
not exceed a 90 day supply (for non-transfers)
or a 2 year supply (for transfers).
Staff understanding at the time, suggested
the same conclusions.
