[arin-ppml] exclusive use of resources - ARIN NRPM explicitly allows *hijacking* of address space

Hi all,

One of the aspects being discussed regarding prop-266 is if the use rights are exclusive or not.

While re-reading the NRPM, working in v2 of the prop-266 and trying to understand all the different points of view from the list discussion, it looks to me that section 2.5 of the NRPM is stating that in case of assignments and reassignments the "exclusive use right" is clearly stated.

However, this is not the case for allocations and reallocations. Which to me, is surprising.

On the other hand, a recent policy proposal, prop-254 (which by the way, I was the author), resulted by the AC editorial process, in a text which is EXPLICITLY AUTHORIZING the *hijacking* of addressing space. Clearly this was not intended.

This is the text:

"Note that the incidental or transient use of address space by third parties shall not be considered a reassignment or a violation of the exclusive use criterion."

It should be:

"Note that the incidental or transient use of address space by third parties, while authorized by the original resource-holder, shall not be considered a reassignment or a violation of the exclusive use criterion."

Otherwise is basically saying that the hijacking of addresses being incidental or transient is *just fine* and not a policy violation. Just to make it clear once more, obviously this was NOT my intent with prop-254.

I just submitted a policy proposal ("Hijacking authorization not-intended") to amend that.

Regards,
Jordi
