      Final call for comments: [prop-011-v001]
      "Modified policy for IXP assignments"
      This is the final call for comments on policy proposal [prop-011-v001]
      "Modified policy for IXP assignments".
      This proposal was presented at APNIC 16 and the following consensus was
         "This was a proposal to modify the current policy for
          IXP assignments. The parts of the proposal relating
          to fees were withdrawn by the proponent during discussion.
          The rest of the proposal was generally supported and
          should be further discussed in the mailing list. There was
          consensus on the proposed definition and routing restriction
          clauses. The consensus relating to the 'characteristics'
          clause was noted to be somewhat ambiguous because of the
          withdrawal of the fee waiver provisions. Also, there was no
          resolution of some controversial points such as combination
          of IPv4/IPv6 assignment. The SIG Chair is to recommend to
          the proponent that he revise the proposal and submit it to
          the mailing list for further discussion."
      This proposal is now submitted to the sig-policy mailing list for an
      eight week discussion period. At the end of that period, if consensus
      appears to have been achieved, the Chair of the Address Policy SIG will
      ask the Executive Council to endorse the proposal for implementation.
      *   Send all comments and questions to:   <sig-policy at apnic dot net>
      *   Deadline for comments:                20 November 2003
      Proposal details 
      [The following elements of the proposal achieved consensus, but
      there were other elements of the proposal that did not achieve
      consensus. These will be further discussed on the
      <sig-policy at apnic dot net> mailing list.]
      1. Definition
        An amended definition for an IXP is proposed as follows:
           "An Internet Exchange Point (IX or IXP) is a layer 1 and layer
            2 network interstitial between and interconnecting three or
            more Autonomous Systems (ASNs) in contiguous IPv4 and IPv6
            subnets for the purpose of exchange of Internet traffic."
      2. Routing
         It is proposed that the restriction upon routability of the
         assigned block is lifted, and this matter is left to the
         discretion of the IXP and its participants.
