I tend to agree with Scott.  In particular, the rewording proposed by Chris 
would make using BGP the ONLY protocol that would require a unique AS number, as 
opposed to the original wording and Scott's version, which would make BGP an 
example of such a situation.

(Something wonky with the quoting happened above; I think my email client lost a 
layer of >'s, and the deleted quoted text from the ARIN announcement had lots of 
underscores where there should have been text, making it almost unreadable.  I 
hope people can get my point from context.  Unfortunately, I already deleted 
Chris's email so I don't have the revised proposal in front of me to paste back in.)
