There's that and there is also an effort to shorten that to a /8 as well as
tighten up requirements for the assignment of it. It's unlikely that the
last /8 and beyond will be assigned in any manner familiar to us today.
There were counter-proposals on the ARIN PPML list. Those parties, I'm part
of one group making a final /8 proposal, are currently attempting to combine
their needs into a single policy so that we can potentially achieve adoption
of the same in the ARIN region.
Im not positive that you're correct about one RIR exhausting at a time and I
could use your help to understand that view. That might occur early on and
we recognized that in the beginning things might not be perfectly even. As
depletion deepens from a time perspective, RIR's are unlikely to receive an
allocation and then become ineligible and all are likely to be eligible at
the same time and permanently until v6 transition has overtaken v4 and we
start seeing returns exceed demand and RIR's stop asking for allocations
from the proposed assignment pool.
