Version 1 of this proposal was presented at APNIC 22, where three of
the four elements of the proposal were accepted by consensus. The
consensus elements of the proposal have now been documented in version
2 of the proposal.
The proposal is now submitted to the Policy SIG mailing list for an
eight-week discussion period. At the end of that period, if consensus
appears to have been achieved, the Chair of the Policy SIG will
ask the Executive Council to endorse the proposal for implementation.
* Send all comments and questions to: <sig-policy at apnic dot net>
* Deadline for comments: 17 November 2006
1. Establish a well-defined service for de-bogonizing new IANA
This service should be implemented across all RIR regions, and it
would be better for all RIRs to use the same framework and website
for the service.
2. Establish greater collaboration between RIRs and ISPs to
improve reachibility of new IANA blocks.
Details of implementation will be left up to the RIRs, but could
include establishing a site for ISPs to confirm reachability
e.g. Enable automatic notification of the icmp/traceroute
(tcptraceroute) from RIRs to ISP's site by registering ISP's own
icmp/traceroute(tcptraceroute) testing servers to RIRs.
3. Provide a standard for IPv6 prefix lengths and prefix locations to
be used by all RIRs for de-bogonizing prefix announcements.
Details of the standard's implementation to be left up to the RIRs.

to relevant meeting minutes, and links to mailing list discussions are
