By my read, this changes the timetable for Implementation from "One year
after ARIN Board adoption" to "Two years after ARIN Board adoption."

I agree with this as the timetable for the removal of the OriginAS field
from the database. However, I think the changes to the policy text
should occur immediately. So, how about "Timetable for Implementation:
Revision of policy text immediately and changes to the database occurring
two years after ARIN Board adoption."

If ARIN-2006-3 <https://www.arin.net/vault/policy/proposals/2006_3.html>,
the policy that created the OriginAS field, had been proposed today, it is
quite possible that it would have been handled by the ARIN Consultation and
Suggestion Process (ACSP)
<https://www.arin.net/participate/community/acsp/> instead
of the Policy Process, as it is not entirely clear that it even needs to be
a policy. Therefore, I believe the policy text can be removed from the NRPM
immediately. However, the changes to the database should have much more
lead time, and I think the two years suggested are appropriate.
