prop-120-v002: Final /8 pool exhaustion plan

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, a waiting list will be created. That waiting list will be
  managed same as recovered pool waiting list.

- APNIC continue to manage two pools, the recovered pool and the 103/8 pool.

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.
