Mike, please refrain from saying that everything people say in this list 
against your ideas or interests is "ad hominem".

Chris points are perfectly valid and reasonable, but instead each and 
every time you face an message that you dislike in a discussion your may 
have interest you find a way to accuse others to use "ad hominem" 
arguments. Every time !
Different people have put different points in order to not support this 
proposal technically or not, most of these points make a fair amount of 
sense and there is nothing wrong to mention the interest certain parts 
of community as brokers have in these questions  as something isolated 
that not necessary benefit the community as a point to show the proposal 
may not be good to advance. Let people understand how they prefer and 
form their own opinion instead of everytime someone mentioned the word 
"broker" you get offended.

Some Brokers have been doing a good work in facilitating move of cold 
resources in the transfer market according to current policies from most 
RIRs, but unfortunately there have been situations where they seem to 
have been involved in controversial situations so it is fair for members 
of the community to look from a different perspective from anything 
proposed by a representative of this class and wish to scrutinize the 
matter more in deep.

Therefore don't get offended too quickly and try to focus on discussing 
the merit of the proposal because trying to clash with everyone that 
speaks out their opposition to a proposal will not make any good to 
advance it.

Regards
Fernando
