ICANN Board Misses Deadline on Numbers

The ASO MOU was signed on 21 October 2004 and specified that "Under this agreement the ICANN Board will ratify proposed global policies in accordance with the Global Policy Development Process, using review procedures as determined by ICANN. ICANN will publish these procedures no later than ninety (90) days from the date of the signature of this agreement by all parties." Another deadline missed.

Meanwhile, the Global Addressing Policy (ASO-001-2) submitted for the approval of the ICANN Board of Directors on 3 September 2004 still awaits a decision. The policy describes the procedure by which IANA will make IPv4 allocations to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). ASO-001-2 has been approved in accordance with the four RIR's local policy development processes.

Karl Auerbach had some interesting thoughts on Global Addressing Policy which may be reviewed here.
