prop-133: Clarification on Sub-Assignments

Proposal textprop-133-v003
SynopsisThe current text uses a “must” together with “documented purposes”. As a consequence, if there is a request with a documented purpose, and in the future the assigned space is used for some other purposes, it will violate the policy.

Note that this proposal is ONLY relevant when end-users obtain direct assignments from APNIC, or when a LIR obtains (from APNIC as well), an assignment for exclusive use within its infrastructure. Consequently, this is NOT relevant in case of LIR allocations.

Current statusTo be discussed at APNIC 51

Secretariat impact assessment

prop-133-v001:

This proposal appears to be straightforward. APNIC notes the expansion policy text to elaborate on IPv6 assignment, and it is unlikely to change current practices for evaluating IPv6 requests.

The proposed text “and may not be sub-assigned to other networks.” is redundant as assigned address space cannot be sub-assigned to other networks.

Implementation: within 3 months.

prop-133-v003:

This proposal appears to be straightforward. APNIC notes the expansion policy text to elaborate on IPv6 assignment, and it is unlikely to change current practices for evaluating IPv6 requests.
