2) Distribute a single /8 to each RIR at the point when new IANA free pool hits 5 */8. This date is defined as "IANA Exhaustion Date". - This will lead to solution 1)- A single /8 is the minimum practical size of allocation from IANAto RIRs although smaller size is theoretically possible - Larger allocation size is not desirable as it artificially fastens the exhaustion date of certain regions
If this proposal is accepted in all RIR communities, should it take precedence over the current global policy for allocating address space to the RIRs? For instance, if the IANA free pool had more than five /8s left in it and fulfilling an RIR's request for additional IPv4 space would take the pool below five /8s, what should happen?
Should the RIR's request be partially fulfilled, leaving five /8s in the free pool, which would then be distributed as per this proposal?
