I support the idea of new policy proposals, but by the time this made it
through a policy cycle, ARIN would have run out of unallocated IPv4
addresses.  A similar constraint could be applied to recipients of IPv4
transfers; the community would want to consider that very carefully.

Would there be a similar constraint for CDNs, hosting companies, and cloud

btw, Ricky, if you want support in getting your proposal submitted, John
will team you up with somebody on the superlative Advisory Council, many of whom are watching this list.
