 That is why:

" The Advisory Council is to act on behalf of the membership on all  
issues including, but not limited to:

_ Registry goals
_ Future funding
_ Allocation policy guidelines
_ Training
_ Nominations for Advisory Council
_ Database maintenance
_ Registry procedures "


"ARIN members will nominate candidates for the the Advisory Council."

This allows:

"The point has also been made that the management of the IP space  
should be put in the hands of those that depend on it - the users.  
Whether those users are ISPs, corporate entities, universities,  
etc., they should all play a role."

BTW, let's move this to the NAIPR list.

      There is a VERY serious flaw in this plan.

      The effective pricing drops with size. Yet the registry is
technically required to be stingy in its IP allocations.

      Can you say "lawsuit"? I knew you could.

      Imagine if ivory sold large bars and small bars and the small 
bars were more cost effective. Then they would only sell you a  
small bar
because you wouldn't need the large bar for a few months, thus causing 
you to pay more.

      Think about it.
