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

Perhaps requiring the requestor to prove that they qualify for an
independent allocation
under ARIN policies rather than requiring them to actually possess one
would be
a reasonable alternative.  If you are actually multihomed with an ISP
assigned
block and have a legitimate need for multicast, I can't imagine that you
don't
meet the criteria for an ARIN issued /22 whether you need it or not.

Thoughts?
