prop-146: Aligning the Contrast

Proposal text prop-146-v001

This proposal suggests aligning the policy document’s contrasting headings and descriptions in Section 3.0.

Section 3.1 Goals of Resource Management, Section 3.2 Policy Environment, Section 3.1.4 No Guarantee of Contiguous Delegation, and Section 3.1.8 Conflict of Goals are particularly relevant to this discussion.

Secretariat impact assessment

This proposal appears to be straightforward.

APNIC notes the change in Section headings 3.1.4 and 3.1.8 of the APNIC Internet
Number Resources document, but the meaning of the section remains unchanged.

APNIC also notes that Section 3.1.8 should be deprecated, and that moving the
second paragraph from this section to Section 3.0 and the third paragraph to
Section 3.1.3 is not an issue. However, removing the first paragraph entirely
may cause confusion about how competing interests are considered.

This proposal would not require any system changes.

If this proposal reaches consensus, implementation can be completed within 3 months.
