ARIN-prop-295: Replace the Image in Section 2 With a Textual Description

Proposal Originator: Peter Jin

Problem Statement:

The beginning of Section 2 in the NRPM shows a diagram of how addressing responsibility is delegated. However, this image does not appear to have a description or even alt text, and the actual text is not selectable. This could have accessibility implications, especially for blind people, if the NRPM is converted to plain text, or if the NRPM is translated into another language.

Policy Statement:

Proposal:

  • Remove 6.5.8.1
  • Change the first sentence of 6.5.8.2 to “All end-user organizations are eligible to receive an initial assignment of /48.”

Timetable for Implementation: Immediate
