I'd suggest adding text like this near the beginning of the response to
section II:

The relevant IANA activities are the allocation of IPv4 addresses,
IPv6 addresses, and ASNs, to the RIRs; and also the delegation of
*.IN-ADDR.ARPA and *.IPv6.ARPA domains to match the allocation of IPv4
and IPv6 addresses.  The global policy development process described
below is used for all of the number-related IANA activities, but the
policy that *.IN-ADDR.ARPA and *.IP6.ARPA domains must be delegated
following IPv4 and IPv6 address allocation is specified by the IETF
(most recently in RFC 3172).

(Then move on to a description of the global policy development process,
with links to the ASO MoU and Attachment A, much as already appears in
the draft.)

Listing the current global policies is probably a good idea, but 
the question that we are trying to answer (in this part of the 
response) is about the policy development process.
