sorry for spamming - please bear with me for a while. i'll need to go through this for proposals with major concerns in JP.
There were quite a number of discussions on whether there are no technical issues/we are ready enough to stop distinguishing 4 byte and 2byte ASNs after Jan 2010.
I know this is outside the scope of this proposal, but quite a number of concerns were expressed, so I thought I'd share it here.
Moving to the main point, regarding the proposal itself, there were general support given that distinction between 4 byte and 2 byte ASN will stop after Jan 2010.
A number of suggestions for imrovements were made as follows:
+ Perhaps, no need to have a phase where people can request for 2 byte without justification as it doesn't mean much (most people are likely to request for 2 byte in that case)
+ Distribute until from 2 byte range until it runs out (~AS60000). Once it does, start distributing from 4 byte range (that way, operators will prepare by the time of exhaustion of 2 byte ASN)

prop-064: Change to assignment policy for AS numbers ________________________________________________________________________
Dear SIG members
Below is a summary of discussions on the proposal to date. We encourage you to continue discussions on the mailing list before APNIC 26.
Regards, Randy and Jian
This proposal seeks to create an awareness for the need to support 4-byte AS numbers by introducing another key date in the timeline for APNIC?,Abs move to assigning 4-byte AS numbers by default.
The proposal suggests that from 1 July 2009, APNIC assigns 4-byte AS numbers by default unless the LIR can document that they cannot successfully announce a 4-byte AS number.
This proposal has not been submitted to any other RIR.

Summary of discussions to date
There was a suggestion that it would be interesting to see the proposal in the ARIN region.
There was a suggestion to add a section to the proposal that APNIC publish statistics about networks not able to support 4-byte AS numbers.
