On behalf of myself, I SUPPORT the petition.

AFAICT the AC ruled the proposal out of scope on the grounds that ARIN is
not in the business of being an Internet routing cop. This proposition is
incorrect. By enforcing minimum assignments throughout its history, ARIN
has long been a key gatekeeper for access to the Internet's BGP routing
system. While mild on the scale of Internet traffic-copishness, it
nevertheless puts Internet Routing Cop proposals in scope.

I oppose the proposed policy, but I think it reasonable for us to
occasionally discuss and evaluate whether ARIN should be Internet-Cop in
some novel new way. And re-evaluate whether it should continue to act as
routing cop in the ways it currently does. The AC need not protect us from
that discussion.
