[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2019-2: Waiting List Block Size Restriction

It's a good question, and I also thought it would best be handled by ARIN during implementation.

Andrew, am I right in assuming that ARIN is under no obligation to follow the current policy for organizations on the waiting list if this new policy is implemented?  When they joined the waiting list, they understood the policy at the time, but was it with the further understanding that ARIN could change the policy?

I can understand why an organization on the list with a legitimate need for, say, a /20, would feel cheated if they waited a year and then were suddenly told they could only get a /22.  It's like waiting in a long line at the supermarket, and then the cash register malfunctions just before it's your turn.  But if ARIN has the right to do this, they probably should, since some of the larger block requests on the current waiting list are potential abusers we're trying to curb.

If they take the /22, at least they'd still have the pre-approval for the remainder of their needs and if they really need it, they can go to the transfer market.

The draft policy does not specifically       state what happens.  I think the best would be to give an       organization currently on the list the option of adjusting their       minimum size to the new maximum, if their current minimum is less       than the new maximum.  We could include this in the implementation       notes or include it in updated draft policy text if desired.

Forgive me if this has been addressed, but what happens to anyone       on the waiting list with a /21+ minimum acceptable allocation       after this proposed draft goes into effect?
