[ppml] Suggestion for ARIN to deligate smaller IP blocks

I think the appropriate policy proposal would simply update references
to /22 in the NRPM (in 18.104.22.168 and elsewhere) to /24, and add
requirements for how much space you must be using to get a /23 or /24
(as there are for /20, /21, and /22).
Whether such a change would get consensus I'm not sure, but we haven't
exactly seen a run on PI /22's, so I doubt we'll see one for /23 or /24
