prop-120-v001: Final /8 pool exhaustion plan

-------------------------------------------------------

Proposer:       Tomohiro Fujisaki
                fujis...@syce.net


1. Problem statement
--------------------

APNIC makes IPv4 address delegation from two IPv4 pools. These are the
103/8 (Final /8) pool and the non-103/8 IPv4 Recovered pool.

Currently, there are no IPv4 addresses in the non-103/8 IPv4 Recovered
pool and APNIC manages a Recovered Pool Waiting List for approved
requests. And, based on the Geoff's projection (*1), the 103/8 (Final
/8) pool will be exhausted in a few years.

It will be necessary to make a guidance about how to manage the IPv4
delegation after both IPv4 pools exhaustion.


2. Objective of policy change
-----------------------------

To provide a guidance for 103/8 pool exhaustion.


3. Situation in other regions
-----------------------------

None.


4. Proposed policy solution
---------------------------

Guidance for 103/8 pool exhaustion:

  - The first time an approved request cannot be fulfilled from the 103/8 
    pool, Final /8 delegations will end.

  - APNIC will begin to manage only one (Recovered) IPv4 pool containing 
    any residual 103/8 space and all future returns, including 103/8 returns.

  - Each new account holder can receive up to a /21 from the IPv4
    Recovered pool.

  - Existing account holders who have not yet received the maximum /21
    from the two pools may continue to apply for space from the Recovered
    pool until they have received a maximum /21 from the two pools.

  - A waiting list will be created if approved requests cannot be 
    fulfilled. Each new account holder will be given priority in the
    waiting list.


5. Advantages / Disadvantages
-----------------------------

Advantages:

  - Possible to avoid confusion at 103/8 address pool exhaustion date

Disadvantages:

None.


6. Impact on resource holders
------------------------------

No impact to resource holders.
