Hello,

Given the revision to this Draft Policy listed below, the AC is seeking community feedback on the revised policy text. Based on the initial discussion re: the original text, the following questions are key:

- Is this problem statement relevant in light of the editorial change under consideration by the ARIN Board (formerly ARIN-2017-11)? https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2017_11.html <https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/2017_11.html>

- Does the removal of specific use cases not considered assignments result in workable text, or does the community feel that the new language is too broad? 

Thanks,

-Chris

> When the policy was drafted, the concept of assignments/sub-assignments did not consider the use of IP addresses in hotspots, or the use of IP addresses by guests or employees in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and many other similar cases.

> Additionally, the IETF has recently approved the use of a unique /64 prefix per interface/host (RFC8273) instead of a unique address. This, for example, allows users to connect to a hotspot, receive a /64 such that they are "isolated" from other users (for reasons of security, regulatory requirements, etc.) and they can also use multiple virtual machines on their devices with a unique address for each one (within the same /64).

> New Text:
> 
> •   Assignment - Address space delegated to an organization directly by ARIN for the exclusive use of the recipient organization. A temporary assignment of address space provided to third parties shall not be considered an assignment.

A new policy proposal has been submitted to amend that, and the text is the same as presented by this proposal at ARIN. Same text has also been submitted to AfriNIC, LACNIC and APNIC.
