<personal opinion not discussed with other co-chairs> i am hesitant to have the policy sig get into the fee structure, as the bylaws are clear that this is an EC function/responsibility. i would hope we can find a path to discuss allocation and other policies without getting into either the fee structure or rir operational details.
At ARIN, the way we deal with this issue is to remove any fee structure language from the actual policy statement, and replace it with non-binding language in an associated portion of the proposal (such as in the rationale section) that requests that the Board consider making changes to the fee structure. Such non-binding language sometimes gives examples of the kinds of changes that might be suitable, but it's always up to the Board to decide on the actual fee structure.
