While it's probably obvious to most of us that mandatory 2fa is a good
thing, I think it should be likewise clear that community consultation is
also a very good thing as a general practice for changes such as this. A
good example is that several folks in the context of this discussion on the
ARIN-CONSULT list have voiced concerns related to SMS as the secondary
method, and others of us have discussed options which may be superior for a
variety of reasons.
