IANA Policy for Allocation of IPv4Blocks to RIRs

ICANN has requested comment on the global policy document submitted by the Address Supporting Organization's Address Council. Thus far, all preliminary public comments tendered have been negative.

It appears to me that what is missing in this process is the record of the policy development process within the ASO. We really should have the opportunity to review the public comments previously submitted by those in the address community. Where is the record of support and dissent? Where are the comments of each individual address registry?

I can well imagine that there are several members on the ICANN Board with a limited grasp of numbering policy... how are they to arrive at a decision on this particular global policy without the benefit of proper policy development documentation? ... or is a rubber-stamp approach the only option on the table?
