I support this policy and believe the policy development process is the
proper place to handle this issue. However, this policy seems to be
implementable as a one-time policy directive to ARIN Staff. Once
implemented, by putting the effected organizations back on the waiting
list, it seems unnecessary to memorialized the text in the NRPM, it would
immediately become extraneous and potentially confusing to future readers
of the NRPM.

Therefore, I would like to recommend the Policy Statement not be added to
the NRPM upon its implementation. I believe this to be consistent with the
intent of the policy.  Otherwise, does ARIN Staff have procedural advice on
how best to handle what seems like a one-time directive?
