[ppml] Proposed Policy: IPv4 Micro-allocations for anycast services

While, I believe that there may be a need for this policy, I'd like to understand the "new services" that are envisioned to thrive under this service.  I certainly don't want ARIN to be in the position of inhibiting the growth of real services.

I think the requirements to obtain an address block under the proposed text of the policy are not rigid enough.  I'm not sure yet how we could rework this to make it more rigid.

Hi, I have two offices, we have 68 IP devices in one office and 73 IP devices in the other office.

The offices are in two different buildings, have a T1 between them, and a T1 to the internet from both locations...we currently are allocated a /24 from our ISP.

Office A located at 123 my street, my town, 
Office B located at 234 your street, their town,

Both are announced from bgp via ASXXXXX

We have anycast DNS servers already deployed in both locations.

May I please have a /24.

Thank you...

That seems too easy to me...
