[arin-ppml] [Fwd: ARIN-prop-131: Section 5.0 Legacy Addresses - revised ver. 3] revised ver. 4

"Specifically designated and permanently made available" makes no
sense to me. If they are permanently available they cannot be registered
or distributed as that would make them no longer available.

What problem is this latest language change intended to resolve?

In what way are they supposed to be "specifically designated?"
