Lauren et., al.,


  Thanks for the update/info Lauren!

  Seems to me that there are two sides to this coin as you
indicate.  But it also seems to me that Curren's comments
to this announcment/letter of policy change are just as
relevent as well, see: http://www.computerworld.com/comments/node/9200359

  Many of us have known for years now that some early on recipients
of IPv4 address space got them under some questionable circumstances.
As such and because of the now shortage of IPv4 legacy address space,
that has been precieved as eminent the suggested or precieved still
unused allocated blocks need to be recovered and this policy might
provide a method by which that can be achieved while the transition
to IPv6 is underway and not going very well unfortunately.  My position
has been for some time now that the "Hording" of unused IPv4 legacy
address space ahould have ended years ago, but for reasons not very
clear, it continued.  Now it seems that John and ARIN have come up with
a potential solution.  Let's see how many of the old 'Horders' will
bite on this one.  >;)
