I think the description of the service is more clear as suggested in
this latest revision. I also like that we moved away from "delegation"
to "the administration of the special-purpose “IN-ADDR.ARPA”
and“IP6.ARPA" DNS zones, which I think eliminates Sullivan's concern.

Yes, I am, modulo some of the changes I proposed just before.

I am fine with that. I think specifications is less ambiguous and
sufficient in this case.

Along with the following "However, it would remove a significant element
of oversight from the current system." I think "no impact" is an
accurate statement.

That is fine.

Ah, I did not spot this! I think we are speaking on behalf of the RIR
communities, so we cannot say the "Internet community".

I think this is cleaner and more concise, since we provided the
definition of the "IANA Numbering Services”in I.A.
