I will prefer to have a policy proposal that can justify a criteria for *not only* multihoming, but it turned out that we can't find a way to objectively verify that (from the staff point of view). So I suggested in the last meeting starting, with this case, which is easy to justify in a criteria for the requester and my feeling was that the room agreed in that path. I think it is much better to cover at least some of the cases, instead of trying to cover all. So if you look to the target, right now is data centers and content providers, which are not ISPs. Presumably they are multihomend in 99.9% of the cases. Do you think other cases are not covered ? If so, do you have an idea of an alternative *objective* criteria ? > > What about those who just want a portable block, no renumbering? What will be the objective criteria for the staff to agree on that ? Typically who want to avoid renumbering is because it is multihomed. Do you see any other case ? > > Why include some routing-policy in an address-policy again? > Isn't it enough that the autonomous system request policy already > requires >=2 peers?

If you are refering to: Assigning a /32 would make those blocks behave as other regular LIR allocated ones and follow generally accepted routing filtering practices. At the same time, the blocks would be identifiable as belonging to a special 'super block'. This would also allow organisations to become an LIR and avoid the need for renumbering. It is a mistake, that should have been removed from this version. > > Why isn't the only real thing we need, a contractual relationship of > some kind a and small recurring fee good enough?
