[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal 101: Multihomed initial allocation criteria

It seems like a step in the right direction.

But... here's a question for ARIN staff:

If an organization gets an ORG ID, gets an allocation from their ISP, 
and starts reassigning space to customers (and SWIP'ing it), does that 
make them a "known ISP"?

If so, then this policy may not actually change anything.

If not, then perhaps we could just change 6.5.1.1 (d) to read "be an 
existing LIR in the ARIN region"?
