[ppml] Policy Proposal: Expand timeframe of Additional Requests

 Being a small ISP this affects me differently.  Having a /18 of IPv4
would incur a fee of about $450 , which wouldn't break the bank but does
cause me concern when people want to raise my costs for nothing more
than policy reasons.  I don't mind paying more for added services, but I
hate paying more to satisfy somebodies ego.

If that $.0268 were applied to the IPv6 allocation as well I would
surrender my IPv6 tomorrow.  That cost would put me out of business and
close my doors.
