[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal 104: Multiple Discrete Networks forproposal 103

I think it is likely that if the AC accepts either proposal 103 or 104  
onto the
docket, we would accept both and merge them.

I am not speaking for the AC in this regard, but, that seems the  
logical step
forward if the proposals are accepted onto the docket.
