[sig-policy] Comment on [prop-039-v001] A proposal to improve reachabili
The RIR technical coordination forum has discussed the following text in the
The objective of this proposal is to establish basis of cooperation
between RIRs/ISPs to test and *ensure* routability of new IANA
allocations to RIRs.
In the forum, I was reminded that 'ensuring routability' is not in accordance
with RFC 2050.
I believe that what we want is a standard process of testing a newly allocated
block to help identify networks that are filtering the new block, allowing the
concerned parties to contact these networks.
To avoid the conflict with RFC 2050, perhaps it is better if the objective is to
"test and promote" rather than "test and ensure" routability.
