[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN 2020-3

Hi Scott,

Given that ARIN utilizes a sparse allocation strategy for IPv6 resources (in my organization’s case, we could go from a /32 to a /25 without renumbering), IMO it would not be unreasonable for the allocation to be adjusted down simply by changing the mask and keeping the /36 or /32 unallocated until the sparse allocations are exhausted. Any resources numbered outside the new /40 would need to be renumbered, to be sure, but that’s most likely less work than a complete renumbering.

That said, I’ll leave it up to Registration Services to provide a definitive answer.

While they indeed have more address space than /40, they may also not need the additional address space.  Some might prefer the nano-allocation given the lower cost.  Will they be required to change allocations, and renumber, in order to return to 3x-small status and associated rate?
