Agreed. To be clear, I did not intend for my question to imply that the goal of keeping the proposal revenue-neutral was in any way dishonorable - ARIN’s financial stability is obviously in the community’s best interests. But we should have informed consent as to how that stability is achieved, and as such, clarifying the intention of the clause is helpful.

Thanks,

-C

I was able to lower my recurring costs and increase my available address pool by bringing up an AS at the 2x-small rate.  Allowing the smallest ISPs to implement IPv6 without additional financial cost seems a prudent way to overcome barriers to adoption.

If so, it would be great to clarify so that community members can make a more informed evaluation as to whether or not to support the clause. If there are other justifications for the clause’s presence, I’d be interested to hear them.

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.

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?
