Alan, Andrei, Nurani and CRISP Team,

Many thanks for your input about future steps and whether/how we should
communicate with RIRs.

I personally found Nurani's suggestion covers perspectives from both sides.

I tried to summarize what is needed in regards to future steps and what
is our role as the CRISP Team.

In my view, the role of the CRISP Team is to develop the proposal and
implementation is left to RIRs. Looking at it from this point, I do not
feel there is a need to inform RIRs as the CRISP Team and it can be left
to the RIRs.

At the same time, it is our role to share what are the expected future
steps clearly to the community. I see some value in informing RIRs to
give additional visibility to the community that :

 - We clearly demonstrate in visible form that the CRISP Team have
   communicated with RIRs, so that RIRs formerly acknowdledges the
   proposal and proceed with preparations they consider as needed

 - It is clear to the community, by receiving some respsonse from RIRs,
   that RIRs have formerly acknowledged the proposal, which require
   some actions by them, and they will proceed with necessary actions
   and engage with the community where needed
   i.e., it would be helpful if RIRs could formally respond and express

Actually, I think the CRISP Team members do trust the RIRs and I also
assume this is the same for most of our number resources community
members, but this may be useful to give assurance and clarity about
future steps for those who may not be so familiar with RIRs and its
community, given there are questions on the IANAXFER list.

In doing so, we should be careful in not making it looks as though the
CRISP team is in a position to request RIRs of actions, and this is
simply commnication as a reference, sharing information which may be
useful to the RIRs.

I felt Nurani's suggestion meets this adequately in my view.

So let's see if there are further input until UTC12:00 23rd Jan as I
suggested in my earlier e-mail. My current suggestion is to take this
approach suggested by Nurani, in case there are no concerns/other
comments expressed.

I continue to welcome to hear your input, and I think it's good that we
are sharing different perspectives so far, so we consider this well.
