[ppml] New ARIN Sub-region Policy Proposal (Rural-America)

I can't say this is John's exact thought, 
but this is my take:

The point is simply this:
If African Sub-Region gets 2003-15 passed.
THEN why not pass a Rural America policy.
1. 2003-15 is for a subset of ARIN
2. Rural America is A SUBSET OF ARIN
4. 2003-15 is what ALL OF ARIN NEEDS.
5. if we start passing sub-regional policies now,
	we will NEVER stop.

I see it this way, today it is African sub-region.
Tomarrow Rural America, next week Alaska,
the week after. 
I guess the question is once we start this, where
will it end? HMM sounds like another thread here..
