In Answer to your question, I would challenge *ANYONE* proposing policy that was on the face of it in violation of current policy.

Unless WACREN has a very strange use case for globally unique space that is not announced that don’t know about – they are in clear violation of the CURRENT policies, while trying to implement new ones that will restrict others who are 100% in compliance who may need more space.

What would have been the argument suppose the authors were not individuals from Wacren but from some other member who has both v4 nd v6 announced?.

I will leave that to Wacren as its their network and am sure they have there own reason. They could as well announce all their aggregates like most folk out there are doing.

But i still dont see how relevant that is vs the policy the folk are proposing.
