[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2019-4: Allow Inter-regional IPv6 Resource Transfers

Thanks for clarifying the policy you were referring to.

In ARIN Transfer Policy there are significant differences between IPv4,
ASNs, and IPv6, are you suggesting all these differences should be
eliminated? Or are you suggesting an equivalent mechanism to transfer IPv6
resources inter-regionally is needed to the one that exists for
transferring IPv6 within the ARIN region?

Currently, ARIN Transfer Policy allows;

A. All resource types to be transferred within the ARIN region as part of a
Merger, Acquisition, or Reorganization (Section 8.2).

B. Only IPv4 and ASNs to be transferred to unrelated organizations (a
designated organization) within the region or to another region (Sections
8.3, 8.4, and 8.5).

Option A has been the case for a long time, whereas option B is more recent
and mostly a result of IPv4 runout and the approaching runout of 16-bit
ASNs. Further, there are differences in how a transfer is
justified between the two options; in option A, legal documentation
justifies the transfer, whereas in option B the need of the recipient
organization justifies the transfer.

There are two different ways to modify the current policy to accomplish
inter-regional transfers of IPv6 resource;

1. Modify option A above to include inter-regional transfers.
2. Modify option B above to include IPv6.

By my read of the community, there are strong objections to option #2,
expanding option B to include IPv6. Whereas there seems to be some
acknowledgment that option #1, expanding Option A to include transfers to
other regions, could be reasonable.

Put another way, the greatest objections seems to be allowing IPv6
transfers to unrelated organizations either within the region or to other
regions, and far fewer objections to allowing IPv6 transfers to related
organizations in another region.

I think for the community to evaluate these two options it needs to
understand the use-cases people have for inter-region IPv6 transfers. The
use-cases brought up by Jordi and the problem statement seems to fall
within expanding option A to include inter-region transfers.  So unless
someone else has use-cases that need option B to be expanded to include
IPv6, then expanding option A to include inter-region transfers seems less
controversial and more likely to gain consensus.

So looking for what seems possible; I suggest we focus on option #1,
expanding option A to include inter-region transfers, rather than option
#2, expanding option B to include IPv6.

Comments and suggestions, please.
