as you pointed out back in oh, IETF-29, actual network operators
don't participate much in the standards setting process so its
no wonder RFC 2050 has (several) "blind-spots" when it comes to
and pragmatically, I am not sure that one could come to a single
consistent suite of polciy for management of number resource. there's
just too many ways (some conflicting) to use them. but this might be
a sigma-six outlying POV. ARIN's community certinly is dominated by
a particular type of network operator.
