ARIN should, in addition to the current forms, publish the NRPM in plain text.
There is a long history of plain text publication on the internet and all RFCs are still published in plain text.
This format facilitates use of a number of available tools for comparing revisions and proposed policies against existing text which cannot be used so easily with HTML or PDF versions.

We have acted upon your suggestion to publish the current version of NRPM in plain text. You will find it available in the right hand navigation of the ARIN web page: https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html Note that we will retain links to prior text versions in the change log, adding it to the column where we provide the link to the prior pdf version.
Suggestion 2012.10 is now closed.
