For the record: I concur with the assessment so far. Patrik's additional 
analysis is useful and correct. I am extremely confident that any 
remaining small gaps or overlaps between protocol parameters and 
numbers, should they exist,  will not turn out to be critical. The 
record shows that protocol parameters and numbers are capable of 
resolving such issues in a timely manner.

I strongly suggest that we congratulate the numbers community and 
particularly the CRISP team volunteers on a job well done. They have 
managed to do substantial work at an amazing pace without ever loosing 
touch with the community. I consider it extremely important that the 
numbers community hears the ICG appreciating their work and their 
achievement finish it according to our time-line.


For completeness I repeat my earlier disclosure:

As a member of the RIPE community I have participated in the public 
discussion about the principles for the numbers proposal. As part of my 
job at the RIPE NCC I have provided advice to management about the 
development of the proposal. I have also worked actively within the RIR 
communities to explain the process and the work of the ICG.
