I thought this would be interesting reading for the working group.
I think the best thing to do is ignore it. If it gets any traction in
ARIN, then we might have to do something.
It doesn't appear to have much support at the present time. OTOH, those of
us active in the ARIN community would appreciate pointers to RFCs that say
this idea is or isn't valid so that we have as much guidance from the IETF
as possible. So far, we've unearthed a bunch of RFCs that make
recommendations, many of which obsolete or contradict each other and none of
which seem to give absolute rules. This was, I believe, the motivation for
Michael Dillon's recent message with the subject "An example of what is
wrong with the IETF's IPv6 documentation". It's hard for the RIRs to figure
out what exactly what the IETF's authoritative direction is, and we do try
to follow that when it makes reasonable sense.
(I'm embarrassed to be listed in the acknowledgements section of the
related draft, because it can imply I agree with it - and my position is
the complete opposite - I'm even fairly strongly anti-/56.)
If you object to it, please ask the author to remove you. I agree that an
acknowledgement implies support; a reference would not.
