[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-133: No Volunteer Services on Behalf of Unaffiliated Address Blocks

Opposed. Making Whois information about legacy blocks invisible removes 
the ability for individuals and organizations to continue to 
"self-police" use of this space. As an example, if I am an ISP with a 
customer who claims to hold a legacy block and who wants it routed, 
where do I verify that if not the whois database? It similarly 
interferes with any future transfer market by making it impossible to do 
even the most rudimentary check on the seller's claims.
