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

Let me see if I understand this sentiment that we want to discourage "forum shopping."

Are the people who say this advocating that RIRs should be insulated from any competition, that number resource users should be locked in to a particular RIR because of their geographic region (despite many of them having facilities and operations in multiple regions) and there should be no way for them to escape bad policies or extortionate fees by "voting with their feet." Did I get that right?

Whose interests does that serve?

I would like to propose to focus on number resources and limit the usage of IPv4, IPv6 or AS numbers in policy text as much as possible.

We made this step in the RIPE transfer policies a couple years ago ( example the RIPE transfer policy :  https://www.ripe.net/publications/docs/ripe-682 )

It will allow for easier / more general policies and it still allows to limit transfer limitations for specific resources.. like 16 bit AS’ns or IPv4 space. (scares resources )

On the topic of looking for shopping for the better RIR policies or cheaper RIR’s, I don’t think that is something we should be too worried about.

Most RIR’s have a requirement for usage in the service region where the RIR is anyway.

Dis-allowing transfers for IPv6 and saying to people that they would have to renumber and request new resources from other RIR’s, will not increase the adoption of v6 usage.

I would support the change to the inter-rir transfer section of the section 8.4
