Proposal summary - ----------------
This proposal describes the process that IANA will follow to allocate IPv4 resources to Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) after the central pool of addresses is exhausted.
The processes for how IPv4 space may be placed in the IANA Recovered IPv4 Pool is out of the scope of this proposal.

Number of people participating in discussions: 3
Summary of discussion to date - -----------------------------
- The requirement for an RIR to put into the pool before it can withdraw, was queried and subsequently removed in Version 2.
- Following a query, the word log was removed in Version 2, to clarify that the reporting process for resources re-allocated under this proposal would be in the form of a registry.
- There was concern that it would take at least one year for this proposal to achieve consensus in all RIR regions.
- It was pointed out that this proposal does not address the issue of transfers, "the primary reason that ARIN rejected the mandatory return clause of prop-069 was this transfer issue and the need to uphold the values expressed in RFC 2050 (namely needs-based resource allocation)."
