Draft Policy ARIN-2014-5
Remove 7.2 Lame Delegations
Date: 29 January 2014
Section 7.2, asking ARIN to resolve Lame Delegations in in-addr.arpa, was established almost 10 years ago. While there may be real lameness problems in the in-addr.arpa tree, this should no longer be part of ARIN policy for two reasons:
1) NRPM should primarily be used to determine when requestors do, and do not, qualify for number resources because that's what ARIN's purpose is relevant to. ARIN is not an operational technical body, and its policy should only regulate activities ARIN is designed to participate in.
1a) We don't put text about how to operate Whois or RWhois or IRR in NRPM, so we should not put in text about how to operate DNS.
2) ARIN has never effectively implemented this. If there's still a need, it should be addressed directly with ARIN management and staff for prioritization.
Remove section 7.2
a.Timetable for implementation: Immediate
7.2. Lame Delegations in IN-ADDR.ARPA
ARIN will actively identify lame DNS name server(s) for reverse address delegations associated with address blocks allocated, assigned or administered by ARIN. Upon identification of a lame delegation, ARIN shall attempt to contact the POC for that resource and resolve the issue. If, following due diligence, ARIN is unable to resolve the lame delegation, ARIN will update the Whois database records resulting in the removal of lame servers.
