Hi Remco, I'm not sure where you see that a second AS would allow a LIR to get a second /32. I'm happy to reword the Policy Text but I think it already specifies the rule: "...separate AS number and a unique routing policy..." The unique routing policy implies that the two AS will have different peering relations so are operated as two different networks. I'm happy to add a sentence about peering too it that makes it clear. I agree to the comment Marco wrote. It would make sense to specify a time-line by when a low used /32 has to be returned after AS have merged together.

As I read it, it allows a LIR to avoid any requirements for fillrates of address space as long as they've got an extra AS, essentially making the number of ASes a metric for the amount of address space one can get without questions. This puts a lot of extra weight on the decision of assigning an extra AS to a LIR and that should be a fully separate discussion. If we can somehow fix this unintended interdependency I'll gladly review my opinion.
