That's broken. As it has been stated in previous messages some days ago, RIR communities can do whatever they want, especially if IETF fails. I'm doing IETF work, but it is clear that some times, for whatever reasons is too slow, or even fails. This community has the right to bypass that if required. And one more demonstration that this is broken: All the RIRs did 4-byte-ASN policies when no RFCs where available. As you can see the RIR system is still working. So yes, I will much prefer to have an RFC, and this is the way we are going, but nothing precludes to go in parallel, as it has been done in the 4-byte-ASN, and probably some other times I guess. And, in the worst case, if the IETF fails again on this (I'm sure will not be the case this time), we could always go for a global policy to instruct IANA to delegate that resource to the RIRs.
