    It is usually better to ask for something instead of waiting for it 
    to be happen automatically.

I agree, and you may guess that if I know that it was being published today, is because I've asked already to the staff :-)

    One of the principles of the existing policy development process is 
    transparency.  One of the reasons for that principle is so that 
    anyone in this working group can assess the impact of a proposed 
    policy.  There is an assumption that the person(s) proposing a policy 
    change would be able to analyze its potential impact or request 
    information, if it is not already available, to do that.
    There is a network operator who provided feedback on the two words 
    which I mentioned previously.  Could you please provide some feedback 
    on the last question in my previous email?

Sorry I guess I missed that part replying too fast. But my answer is the same.

I don't keep myself the emails from that discussion (I delete them once I respond), and you are deleting that text, so I can to see it anymore ... So please, don't delete text from emails, so to have a fluid discussion!

I captured it from the mailing list archive. I think you mean this:

After receiving feedback from Resource Members, I read the 
information on the web site to see what could be useful to 
them.  Here's an example: "All requests for ASNs under these criteria 
will be evaluated using the guidelines described in RFC 1930 or its 
successors".  That RFC contains ten pages.  The English version of 
the text in your email fits in one page.  That text contains the 
words "routing policy".  Would a network operator  understand those words?

-> Yes, anyone requesting an ASN MUST understand that. Anyone reading the policy manual MUST understand that. Otherwise, they should ask the staff or get some training!

There was also the following in the text: "or be planning to 
interconnect within a period of no more than six (6) month as of the 
moment of the application".  Is that clearer in comparison with "a 
reasonably short time thereafter"?

-> I don't see where is that text? Anyway, in my opinion, in some cases it is better to not provide strict deadline, so in a case by case basis the staff can decide.

-> if you mean that in LACNIC they mention six months, I didn't developed that policy proposal and didn't realized about that. I may probably actually suggest a policy to reword it there as well ...
