That makes sense to me. Any other comments for the suggested text
"delegation of subdomains below the IN-ADDR.ARPA and IP6.ARPA domains"?

I'm personally happy with your suggestion Alan.
Since we are entering into holiday season again, let's give sometime for
feedback until the next call on 2nd. We confirm at the 7th call.

For interaction on the IANAXFER ML, if Alan or anyone else is willing
to,I think we can go ahead and explain the rationale behind the current
language on the IANAXFER ML, stating that we are discussing an
alternative language to make it more clear.

(This it not a controversial topic, and I don't see the need to wait for
CRISP Team's agreement on the interpretation of the language and
explaining the current situation.)
