Compliments of the season gentlemen and ladies,
I am a bit confused at the issues raised by Owen. I thought the appeal
Andrew is leading concerns the 'rough concensus' granted to the policy and
not the content of the policy itself. Most recent comments are talking
about content of the policy which I did not see as part of appeal. Please,
Andrew clarify the house. Are you appealing the process of concensus of the
policy or contents of the policy or both?

With all due respect, Ali of Comoros, the policy proposal has a number of
flaws which are harmful to the Internet and harmful to real world
businesses going forward today. The current proposal has done little to
these issues as the core idea itself is fundamentally flawed.
I’m not calling anyone clueless, but I am calling the proposal a triumph of
misinformation and/or misunderstanding of the fundamentals of internet
and a clear and deliberate effort to obfuscate the genuine mathematics of
the present IPv4 situation.
Andrew is exactly right about who the beneficiaries of this proposal would
be (operators who don’t understand the mathematics of current operational
reality who wish to begin operations at a later date hoping there will still
be space available to do so) regardless of whether that defined class
anyone here or not.
