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.
