Ah, sorry for the misunderstanding Jeanette. Then I would simply redirect my question to John. 
I have noticed that ARIN staff seems to crave some kind of official recognition from the US govt; is this what you mean, John? If they send someone to your meeting they are setting 'public policy'?

Milton, as I said in the line above, I was summing up what John had said
in his earlier response to me. I think I quoted him.

> Jeanette: Not sure what you mean by this. "Participation" in a body is not the same as making or setting public policy. In what sense is a decision, say, to send someone to an ARIN or RIPE meeting a form of "governmental public policy"?
