I have forwarded you the report off-line to avoid spaming the list.......if you don't get this one, we could have a sinner in our midst (failed to see the kings garment! :-)

last change on the basis that we could rely on LIRs to do the "right
thing" instead of saying "none of these resources" and turning a blind

I think, my side is fast loosing on numbers on this issues  and i could concede but it would be very wrong for me to do it on the basis of "rely on LIR's to do the right thing"

AFAIK, the right thing for an LIR to do with to maximize profit (so sell it to the highest bidder) this way we could bring trouble on ourselves - as you have stated in response to another email, we cannot predict what will happen to demand for this resource in other region and my feeling is that leaving this at the discretion of the LIR's would be leaving a crack in the hole and hoping nothing slips through.

Life is the educators practical joke in which you spend the first half learning, and the second half learning that everything you learned was wrong.
