"..Internet number resource policies that have the agreement of all
RIRs according to their policy development processes and ICANN, and
require specific actions or outcomes on the part of IANA or any other
external ICANN-related body in order to be implemented."

Based on this, it is unlikely that a policy that ceases to be global
can make sense or even be enforced at a regional level. This is the
reason I feel, it should lose the status of "approved".

My feeling is that we do need a policy to handle this, albeit, a
modification to the current PDP should be sufficient

> maybe the policy should return to the PDP for review
I don't mind this......but our current PDP doesn't seem to have
provisions for returning a policy for review after it passes the
approval stage.........Possibly another adjustment we might want to
make ?? :-)

Life is the educator's practical joke in which you spend the first
half learning, and the second half learning that everything you
learned in the first was a joke.
