I certainly support audit and revocation powers. I think we already

Well, I have been a RIR hostmaster/resource analyst and I can tell you
take very significant amounts of person hours (per audit).
Perhaps staff could give us an estimate of the number of new FTE staff
they would need to hire (if any) to carry out such a policy?

I say the same thing I said before. the 'NIC already has the power to
audit and revoke resources.
I don't see what this proposal gives them that they don't already have.
Are we trying to prolong the lifespan of IPv4 with this proposal, or
