Hi John,
Thanks for your email, brother.

...i agree with Bill and David, that the definition in
draft policy ARIN-2022-11 should not include a not
yet defined term like 'identifiers'; implying a use, in
particular (then why not locators too?), imho :-/

> you should suggest specific wording changes
...i really appreciate the efforts which transpire
from the definition provided by Bill and interestingly
 reworded by David; but, i'm not fully satisfy :-/

Please do accept to consider an other alternative;
worded in a naive try to better capture what we
know about Internet Number Resources.


Internet Numbers

Internet Numbers (IN) are those which are stored into the registries listed
and defined in RFC7249 [1].
[1]: RFC7249 - Internet Numbers Registries <

Internet Number Resources

Internet Number Resources (INR) are the scarce resources, mentionned in
RFC7020 [2], and uniquely allocated from the central Internet Numbers
registries [1]; in order to be responsibly (based on global & regional
Policies) distributed through the Internet Numbers Registry System (INRS)
[2], and used in networking design, operations and testing (research,

INRs are, practically, allocated from the central registries of Internet
Numbers [1] and delegated to the Regional Internet Registries (RIR) for
responsible distribution (assignment/allocation) to Local Internet
Registries (LIR), ISPs and End Users, in need basis, in order to
addressing, operating and testing (including research & measurement
activities) their networks.
[2]: RFC7020 - Internet Numbers Registry System <

...i prefer a more generic approach, to keep a  stable
 terminology, even in case of future type of INRs :-)

btw, it's free!
...then, please, feel free to amend or modify it at will ;-)

Please let me also know, if you think that approach
is wrong :'-(
