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
_ Nominations for Advisory Council
_ Database maintenance
_ Registry procedures "
"ARIN members will nominate candidates for the the Advisory Council."
"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
because you wouldn't need the large bar for a few months, thus causing
you to pay more.
Think about it.
