The rationale for the new value is:
- Today IANA allocates 2 x /8 as a normal allocation to every RIR
as that is what they are asking as a gentlemen agreement, so the last allocation will have the same size as the actual allocations.
Will LACNIC's and AfriNIC's next allocation request be for 2 /8s?
The answer, from LACNIC side is Yes. Additionally, according with our projections, all the RIRs will be requesting 2 /8s for at the moment that this policy will be applied if approved.
And are slow landing conservative policies in place to handle these two /8s? And if not, when will they be developed?
Obviously No. You already know the answer. There are not such policies in any region. IMHO those policies are necessaries. In fact LACNIC has made a proposal to the other RIRs to promote a better coordination among our communities for facilitating some kind of collaborative effort in designing proposals in that sense. What I think would be very good.
......... Let's set N=0 and move on to a more useful discussion as to where we go from 2010 onwards. There are bigger problems facing us than trying to preserve the past.
Philip: with all my respect, I think that you are talking about 2 different things and we have to face both. How to deal with IPv4 exhaustion and, as you said "where we go from 2010 onwards". They are not incompatible things.
