as Leo reminded me some weeks ago, this task force was support to be 
"the body that thinks through the open issues concerning PI networking"
and presents some proposals (or at least some results) for the next 
RIPE LIR WG meeting.

As nothing has been discussed so far, can I read this as "the current
PI policy isn't that bad after all, at least not bad enough to actually
change it"?

Trying to elicit at least *some* comments...

(I did *not* volunteer to do PI policy work, that's a can of worms - I just 
feel like stirring this a bit, to figure out whether there is a need to
work on this in the LIR-WG forum, or whether we can close it again).
