Hi Elvis

I have the same view as you do.
Despite this undertanding (and maybe the Board too - and correct me if I
don't reproduce it accuratelly) I refuse the view that "PDP is a concession
of the Board to the Community" and - this is what makes it even more
controvertial - that 'this does not void ICP-2" due to historical reasons
or whatever justification.

They are entiteled to their opinion but I do not believe that corrensponds
to practical realitty.

I sincerelly hope that not only ARIN Board by any other RIR Board never
void the bottom-up process and respect the ultimate power of community to
choose how policies will be, not the Board unilaterally at their will.

Obviouslly this doesn't confuse with the prerrogative of the RIR Board to
care about the organization protection and legal protection and I support
that including the prerrogative of the Boards to ractify proposals that
reached consensus.
