Looks like IETF wants the global BOGONs to be attested by
IANA rather than by an RIR from what you quoted.
Yes, for resources not allocated by IANA or marked as Reserved
But IANA has nothing to do with resources allocated to RIRs already.
Any reason APNIC feels the need to usurp that process?
Accordingly to IANA 103/8 was allocated to APNIC and now they
don't have unallocated IPv4 address space.
103/8 APNIC 2011-02 whois.apnic.net <http://whois.apnic.net>
The policy is addressing the unallocated address space within APNIC
If this policy is only speaking to /8 IPv4 blocks & IPv6 blocks
which are administered by APNIC, it should be noted that because
of inter-RIR transfers of IPv4 addresses between regions RIRs
other than APNIC are now administering sub-portions of the larger
IANA allocated blocks. There are portions of a /8 for example
which are now delegated to other RIRs for registrations in those
regions. Should it be assumed that those sub-portions
administered by RIRs now are considered allocated (and not bogons)
for purposes of this policy?
The policy is for unallocated address space (v4 and v6) under APNIC
bucket. If the resources has been transferred to other RIRs means they
are not unallocated anymore. If a /8 has been chopped by IANA and
allocated to multiple RIRs e.g. 202/8 then APNIC will create AS0 ROAs
for only those unallocated address space under APNIC's management. Any
address space which is not under APNIC's resource bucket is not
covered by this policy. I hope that answers your question.
I'd like to suggest that the text "in its bucket" is not very well
defined. Can I suggest this updated policy text to clarify the intent
as you've described.
APNIC will create AS0(zero) ROAs for all the unallocated (IPv4 and IPv6)
address space for which APNIC is the current administrator. APNIC will
not create AS0(zero) ROAs for any block which is currently allocated or
transferred to another RIR, or is a private, special purpose, or any
other IANA reserved or unallocated block.
Hope this helps,
