I see what you mean and tried to play with some words, but I felt putting a word that makes it sound like a requirement gives quite a strong impression.
"plan" doesn't make any requirement at all, as I pointed out before. Apart from in Japan, it seems. ;-)
In retrospect, I think your new words of: The LIR should also plan to announce the allocation as a single aggregated block in the inter-domain routing system within two years. should be replaced with: The LIR must also announce the allocation as a single aggregated block in the inter-domain routing system within two years.Just delete the word "plan", as a plan is nothing more than a vague statement of some future intention which may or may not come to pass. Also change "should" to "must" - that's a commitment now!
As I also indicated before, I'm amused that you propose the word "plan" for the updated text, yet it was a complete show stopper for the 200 number that you are trying so hard to delete.
