If this proposal is accepted in all RIR communities, should it take precedence over the current global policy for allocating address space to the RIRs? For instance, if the IANA free pool had more than five /8s left in it and fulfilling an RIR's request for additional IPv4 space would take the pool below five /8s, what should happen?
Should the RIR's request be partially fulfilled, leaving five /8s in the free pool, which would then be distributed as per this proposal?
If APNIC requests two /8s while IANA free pool has 6 (and if APNIC's request should be approved), then APNIC should receive 1(for the request) plus 1 (according to this proposal) /8 (total 2). All the other RIRs have one /8 each.
Similarly if APNIC requests two /8s while IANA has 7, then APNIC gets 2 plus 1 /8s (total 3) and the others have 1 each.
