[ppml] Fw: IRS goes IPv6!

You effectively said they would not be considered 'service providers' when
applying for IPv6 space because they do not currently operate using the
'internet' protocol (implies IPv4). They are clearly providing a service
that interconnects multiple customers, so their crime of historically using
a different protocol appears to be excluding them from the club with access
to address space for the new protocol.
