The ARIN Advisory Council (AC) has classified "ARIN-prop-256: Modify 8.3
and 8.4 for Clarity" as an editorial change to the Number Resource
Policy Manual (NRPM).
The text of the editorial change is below for consideration.
The process for editorial updates to the NRPM is found in Part One,
Section 3.1, paragraph 3 of the PDP:
"Changes to policy that are purely editorial and non-substantial in
nature are outside the scope of the full Policy Development Process and
may only be made with 30 days public notice followed by the concurrence
of both the ARIN Advisory Council and ARIN Board of Trustees that the
changes are non-substantial in nature."
Your feedback on this editorial update is encouraged. The review period
will close on 25 October 2018.

Editorial Change: Modify 8.3 and 8.4 for Clarity (Formerly ARIN-prop-256)
Language in 8.3 and 8.4 refers to “M&A transfers” without defining that
term, which does not accurately describe the intention of the community.
For example, a “reorganization” is handled under section 8.2, but a
“reorganization” is not part of the common understanding of the term
“M&A” . We have had clients become concerned about this issue, when they
come to market to sell addresses but see that there might be a waiting
period due to a recent 8.2 transfer.
Replace the term “M&A” with the term “8.2” in 8.3 and 8.4.
Comments: Improves clarity.
Timetable for Implementation: Immediate
