Thank you Izumi for summarizing these issues.

I agree with your observations and others' comments.

Totally agree with Nurani that while low traffic on the ianaxfer list is
a concern, we shoudl take into account the ongoing discussions in the
regions since the NTIA announced the intent. Much of the initial draft
the RIPE members of the CRISP team initially proposed was based on the
takeaways from the session at RIPE69 and before.

And low traffic on ianaxfer - yes, but it is not totally surprising - at
the end of the day we are not proposing substantive changes to the way
things work, since no issues have been identified with the existing setup.

I think our work was guided by a principle don't fix what is not broken
- not creating a blueprint of a new theoretical system, but rather
focusing on essential elements of the pragmatic framework, that has
proved to work well.

Fully agree with Alan's comment here.
