How long do you expect your carve out to last? And if another RIR is out of
space they have need. I'm not sure that this is truly a critical concern.

But they're not banned as I had pointed out in another post. There's a knob
that RIR's can opt to turn on to allow them without having to rework the
global policy. The fact that we included the option to do a globally
coordinated policy as well as an ICANN ASO global policy should speak
volumes as to the suggestion.
