FYI - The IANA administers the unallocated portions of the various
Internet number resource pools, and there is a proposal to transition
stewardship for the IANA from the USG to the global Internet community.

There is a request for proposals on how to best accomplish this transition,
and the RIRs convened the Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal
(CRISP) team to prepare a response for the Internet number resources
portion.   The draft Proposal is now available for review and public comment,
as noted in the attached message.
