I'm willing to look at good ideas no matter where they come from.

I suspect that often the members don't know what they think on an issue
unless they are asked. That's why I like to see these things discussed in
relatively open forums because if someone suggests a really bad thing,
then at least one member is likely to call up the AC and point out why it
is a problem. But in the absence of member input the AC has to operate
based on their understanding of the addressing infrastructure. That's why
we look for knowledgable people for the AC regardless of whether they work
for an ARIN member or not.
