ARIN-prop-275: Hijacking Authorization Not-intended
Proposal Originator: Jordi Palet Martinez
When prop-254 (Clarification on IPv6 Sub-assignments), it was not related, neither intended, to modify the “exclusivity” criterion.
Of course, it was not intended to provide an explicit authorization for incidental or transient uses of address space by third parties, which in fact it is a hijacking of addresses.
However, surprisingly, the resulting text, after the ARIN AC editorial process, is doing that.
Note that the incidental or transient use of address space by third parties shall not be considered a reassignment or a violation of the exclusive use criterion.
Note that the incidental or transient use of address space by third parties, while authorized by the original resource-holder, shall not be considered a reassignment or a violation of the exclusive use criterion.
Timetable for Implementation: Immediate
Anything Else: Situation in other regions: There is not equivalent explicit hijacking authorization in other RIRs.
