I browsed through this allocation document. Nice work!
What are the aggregation policies with these networks ? I see that the
smallest allocation to cities would be /32. Who would announce for
example the NL-Amsterdam block 2346:7600::/29 ? If it is anybody other
than AS1200, in the case of AMS-IX, then they would be dependent on that
particular AS (and most probably, the member operating that AS).

Can you point me to a document that explains how this will solve the
dependency issue raised ?

Thanks, groet,
