|Synopsis||This is a proposal to make it a condition that LIRs aggregate subsequent IPv6 allocations that they receive from APNIC.|
|Current status||Withdrawn by authors. See prop-082 for proposal by same authors that incorporates feedback from APNIC 28.|
|Relevant forum||Policy SIG|
|Status at other RIRs|
LACNIC: The LACNIC community is currently discussing 2007-01: Modifications to the IPv6 Prefix Initial Allocation Policy, which would remove the requirement to announce an initial allocation as a single prefix in favour of announcing the prefix with the minimum possible level of disaggregation.
RIPE: The RIPE community is currently discussing 2009-06: Removing Routing Requirements from the IPv6 Address Allocation Policy.
AfriNIC and ARIN: Initial IPv6 allocation criteria in both these regions require a plan to aggregate, with no requirement for aggregation for subsequent allocation criteria. Neither RIR is has any proposal to modify these criteria.
