This policy proposal has been withdrawn


A Local Internet Registry (LIR) can use LIR-PARTITIONED status field in inet6num objects to represent those blocks managed by different groups/parts/departments within the LIR.

This allows an LIR to document the distribution and delegate the management of allocated space within their own organisation. Address space with a status of LIR-PARTITIONED is not considered used. When the addresses are used, a more specific inet6num object should be registered in accordance with the policies for making assignments.
