Understood. If you would like to have it reflected, would you send
suggested text so CRISP Team members can take a look?

I note that you are working on other draft texts as well, which I really
appreciate -

It would be helpful if you are able to priority to suggest text on this
and send it in the coming few hours if possible, as we haven't confirmed
clear agreement within CRISP Team to include it.

Andrei had shared a summary to IANAXFER list on IN-ADDR.ARPA and
IP6.ARPA domains, and may be worth seeing whether it is consistent.

If other CRISP Team members have no objections, I don't have an issue
about including it, as long as relationship (or no relationship) with
NTIA is clearly explained.

Thank you Alan, and please let me know if you have any issues with this
suggested approach.
