You are probably aware by now that the exhaustion of IPv4 address space is likely to occur in the next few years.
You might be interested to know that a proposal to deal with IPv4 exhaustion has been put forward for discussion in the APNIC region.
The proposal suggests five main principles:
(1) Global synchronization:
All five RIRs will proceed at the same time for measures on IPv4 address exhaustion.
(2) Some Blocks to be left:
Keep a few /8 stocks instead of distributing all.
(3) Keeping current practices until the last moment:
Maintain the current policy until the last allocation.
(4) Separate discussions on "recycle" issue:
Recovery of unused address space should be discussed separately
For more information on the proposal, see:
This proposal affects the whole Internet community. I encourage you to read the proposal and have your say on the APNIC Policy SIG mailing list, or at the upcoming APNIC 23 meeting in Bali, Indonesia, 26 February - 2 March 2007. If you can't attend the meeting in person, you can still have your say by participating remotely via live chat.
