While I understand you don`t agree with the policy as its stands, it is an *interim* proposal to facilitate v6 take-up within the ixp community. No doubt if we shift the policy to fit your wishes, someone else will disagree. In the interests of pragmatic progression, lets debate these issues from the perspective of a working model and get this policy approved. Regards, Steve.
