Owen, for clarity:

[the] Advisory Council (AC) accepted "ARIN-prop-310: Clean-up of NRPM Sections 2.1 and 2.2" as a Draft Policy.
This was not accepted as an Editorial policy, and will therefore undergo all the normal community review and
steps toward recommended draft, etc.

The policy name  would have been changed to  ARIN-edit-xxxx  had it been brought on otherwise, as you can see by 22-[6,7]

Since this expands the actual scope of 2.1 and 2.2, it is not editorial IMHO.

It likely applies the intended scope and may even be the currently practiced scope, but does not reflect the previously documented scope.

Draft Policy ARIN-2022-4: Clean-up of NRPM Sections 2.1 and 2.2

Problem Statement:

This proposal continues the work that the ARIN AC NRPM Clean-up Working Group undertook to conduct an editorial review of the NRPM. It relates specifically to Sections 2.1 and 2.2. The focus of this proposal is to increase the consistency of terminology employed in the NRPM.

Policy statement:

In Section 2.1, change the text “IP address space” to “Internet numbering resources”, and in Section 2.2, change the text “address space” to “numbering resources” to reflect all of the types of Internet numbering resources administered by the types of entities defined in those sections.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate


This proposal is intended to replace Prop-305 in part. Although the proposal was drafted in the course of an editorial review of Sections 2.1 and 2.2, some of the changes proposed may not be considered purely editorial in nature and so this proposal is not being presented as strictly editorial.
