Hi Izumi, Izumi Okutani said the following on 6/2/08 13:42: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. ;-)
Yes, I was hoping "plan" could be avoided in the updated text also.
In retrospect, I think your new words of: The LIR should also plan to announce the allocation as a singleaggregated 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!
I like that. I'd fully support the proposal if it is amended as you've presented.
