After we reviewed the major concerns raised during the discussion in APNIC
prop-078 'Reserving /10 IPv4 address space to facilitate
We have made some changes and come up with a revised proposal.
We are seeking your help for further feedback regarding our draft proposal,
so we can revise it further before we submit the new version.
We summarize the major concerns raised in APNIC 28 as follow:
- Doubt that a /24 is adequate for large LIR'
- Subsequent allocations are not neccessary
- Prop-078 serves similiar purpose with the final /8 policy,
and seems dupicated
After carefull review of those comments, we admit that prop-078 has
similiar purpose with the
final /8, but we don't think it's duplicated. The major difference is
require the applicant to demonstrate IPv6 deployment needs.
We understand most people gave feedback in APNIC 28 assumed that the final
should be used for IPv6 transition. But the policy doesn't explicitly
After taken all the above into account, we come up with a draft
The main point of the new version is :
In order to make the message more clear, the proposal specifically
IPv6 deployment needs or transition plan in final /8 allocations or
It is proposed that in order to receive an allocation or
assignment under the final /8 policy: 1. The applicant must demonstrate
IPv6 transition plan or IPv6 deployment needs, especially the needs for
IPv6 to IPv4 internetworking. 2. The applicant must either have
existing IPv6 addresses or valid
application for IPv6 addresses. 3. The applicant must meet
the requirements specified in the current
final /8 policy
The major changes to prop-078 version 1 is:
-Extent the reserved /10 block to the whole /8 -The allocation size
conform to the final /8 allocation size
-Eliminate subsequent allocation
The major changes to the final /8
policy is: Requiring IPv6 deployment needs or transition plan in final /8
allocations or assignments
The draft is attached at the bottom of this email,
we appreciate your comments and advices.
Thanks & Regards

_______Prop-078 Version 2 Draft_______________________
Requiring IPv6 deployment needs or
transition plan in final /8 allocations or assignments
1. Introduction ----------------
This policy proposal seeks to supplement the final /8 policy, by requiring
to demonstrate immediate IPv6 deployment needs, which ensures LIRs use the
for IPv6 transition.
The intention is to stimulate native IPv6 deployment as much as possible,
the need for future networks to communicate with the IPv4 world.
2. Summary of the current
The Internet will use IPv4 for many years during the adoption of IPv6,
during this period, LIRs will need to connect to the IPv4 Internet while they
deploy services using the IPv6 Internet.
The final /8 policy has the objective to assist the LIR to participate in
Internet while they deploy services using the IPv6 Internet,but the final
does not specifically require LIRs to demonstrate IPv6 deployment needs or
A /22 allocation is still possible for some small LIRs to grow IPv4
To make the message clear and ensure IPv4 space will remain available for
LIRs' IPv6 deployment. This policy proposal seeks to ensure the final /8
is used in IPv6 transition
