Hi Bill,

What you wrote below is actually the current policy, why clutter things?

" LIR-assigned number resources employed by an end user with a routing
policy in which the LIR is not the primary network service provider handling
the majority of the end user's associated network traffic do not count
toward the LIR's efficient utilization of addresses."

Regards,
Mike

No, interfering with the prices a registrant charges its customers is way
out of bounds. It would be out of bounds in the RSA let alone in the policy
documents.

If you want to go this route, here's how you write the policy:

LIR-assigned number resources employed by an end user with a routing policy
in which the LIR is not the primary network service provider handling the
majority of the end user's associated network traffic do not count toward
the LIR's efficient utilization of addresses.

It's not great but at least it's in-scope for number policy.

Bill Herrin
