Re: Internic address allocation policy (fwd)

Now that we've established that I don't have fangs or horns (thanks to
Chris and Matt for clearing that up :-)) I would like to urge you all
to join the IRE mailing list to discuss the IP polices.

Please remember that the IP policies are meant to be constantly evolving
and improving.  The current policies are definitely not popular and
the IP registries like them least of all.  However, until other options
are available we're stuck with them.  So, we need everyone to work 
together on coming up with alternatives to the allocation polices that
will satisfy each of us as well as the limitations on IPv4.

All I ask is that instead of just complaining about the policies, you
offer valid alternatives at the same time.
