[ppml] Allocation and reallocation

This is handled in the policy as it exists today.  The LIR can be it's own
customer for some of it's blocks.  If, for example, an LIR receives a /20
from ARIN, they need to allocate or assign 80% of it before they can get
more.  They can ASSIGN some of it to themselves for their infrastructure
as long as they meet the 50% utiliziation criteria for assignment on those
blocks. They can assign and allocate other parts of it to their customers.
When 80% has been allocated or assigned, they go back to ARIN and ask
for another allocation.

Really... This part of the policy is _NOT_ broken.  The terminology (which
is what started this debate) may be, but, the actual policy itself is not.
