Is the plan to see what happens in APNIC and then list in the other regions or take them all one by one? Perhaps this should become an offline conversation, also feel free not to answer, I am just curious. The global policy process has been interesting to navigate and I would be happy to share experiences.
There isn't a plan as such. The co-authors have been discussing about the proposal. It will have to be formatted to fit the requirements of the AfriNIC region, for example. My individual opinion is that there isn't any compelling reason to do that immediately. It also helps to have more feedback.
We could discuss about the global policy process in private as it may not be on topic for this list.
Understood. I think that it must be addressed, but that may be able to happen through local policy in each RIR. The risk there is that nothing ends up being returned, or that some RIRs remain unable to return space.
The question is whether it is an issue that can be solved through this proposal.
I will contact the other authors and get back to you.
For myself, the idea is interesting but not without issue. Assuming that we could find compromise on new text, there are procedural issues at play. Namely the fact that ARIN has already adopted the current prop-086 text. If we change it significantly at this point, we may end up with another prop-069 scenario. I do assume that there is a way to navigate this but it is a consideration.
If there is a compromise to the satisfaction of all the regions, we should be able to solve the procedural issues.
