Randy - 
  I have absolutely no doubt that there are sufficient folks 
  participating in NANOG to get nearly any policy desired 
  through the ARIN policy process. To the extent that folks 
  don't care to learn the current policies and participate in 
  the policy development process, they end up supporting the 
  current policies through their inaction.
