[ppml] Keeping the story straight

Unfortunately volunteers offering a service can't be trusted by
organizations, as the service can vanish and then you're in trouble.

Sorry, but this ULA-Central need a serious proven and stable service, and
the RIRs are already doing so for other kinds of addresses. They are the
perfect fit, and the alternative is IANA or a third party organization. As I
indicated several times, in my opinion doing so will not be any good for the
RIR system.

Of course, if the community prefers going that way and have a third party
organizations running that registry, I'm fine and all will pay the
consequences sooner or later.
