Hello Richard,

Thanks for the inputs. Few comment below:

I will add a precision on (2) above to say “Ratify **Global** policies approved by the RIRs”. Global policy being policies defined by RIR communities to be implemented by ICANN/IANA in managing number resources for the RIRs.

I will say “Allocate IP prefixes and ASN blocks to RIRs based on related global policies”.

“Publish and maintain these allocations in a global and open registry".

This is a suggestion for discussion and we will appreciate to hear from other on this list about it. To help the input on this, I will just add a question related to your proposal: Why will we move this part of the function out of ICANN if  right now, as RIR we have no reason to complain about the performance of the service provided by ICANN?
