The RIR CEO's told the IANA to use their best judgement in making the /8
assignments. This is exactly what happens with each assignment today
case, and would have been the same result without that feedback to
what would normally have been a behind the scenes implementation issue
been publicly detailed, and I, for one, thank the IANA for their clear
timely communications on this matter.

This is not formation of global Internet numbering policy, it's
of the existing policy regarding IANA to RIR /8 block assignments.
the global nature of the Internet means that we'll all deal with
