[ppml] IPv6 PI to legacy IPv4 holders

Its possible (and in some cases preferred) for small orgs to use a
private ASN and let the the service provider strip it before
propagating the announcement. I forget the exact numbers but its in
the 64000/65000 range. This is one of the sources of "inconsistent
ASes" in the routing table.

Requiring the assignment of an ASN would burn ASNs unnecessarily in this case.
