[arin-ppml] Revised and Retitled - Draft Policy ARIN-2021-6: Permit IPv4 Leased Addresses for Purposes of Determining Utilization for Future Allocations

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your reasoning. 

For point A I would say the cart has left the barn and these once public resources are now effectively private resources, with different rules logically applying.

Is rent always and everywhere a bad thing? We can't ignore the fact that these resources are valuable and that drives behaviors like leasing and efficient use.

For point B, this policy provides the same opportunities that ARIN has always provided its ISP customers, to temporarily sub-assign networks to its clients.

The only difference is these clients would not be part of the registrant's own operational network. And if all the lessors do is precisely and only what ARIN does, I fail to see the market opportunity for those who would wish to purchase addresses in order to lease them out.

Remember this is pretty much policy today, except for the circuit requirement, which:

A) Can be easily worked-around through a traffic-free virtual connection

B) Is more restrictive than RIPE policy has been for many years. Can you point to the problems that have ensued that should worry us?

I continue to OPPOSE this proposal because: 
A) It asks ARIN to facilitate blatant and unapologetic rent-seeking 
behavior with changes to public policy. 
B) It proposes that third parties perform precisely and only the 
functions that ARIN itself performs without any credible compliance 
mechanism to assure the third party performs to ARIN's standards or in 
accordance with the community's established number policy.
