I must have misunderstood a message posted by one of the authors of 
the global policy proposal.  The message mentioned that:

  "the ARIN community having agreed on a different text than
   the other RIRs' communities"

 From what you said above, it seems that some RIRs might not be aware 
that there wasn't agreement on a common text as they accepted the 
global policy proposal.
