[ppml] Policy Proposal -- Eliminate Lame Server policy

I do plan to submit my proposal. My final comment on all of this is  
with regards to ARIN's stance on operational issues.

I agree ARIN should be careful, but keep in mind ARIN does provide an  
operational function of reverse DNS authority delegation. Because  
ARIN engages in this very-real activity, policy must exist to cover  
its implementation, design, and overall operational health.

If ARIN just did AS numbers and IP allocation, and another  
organization did reverse delegation, say Network Solutions, then YES  
- ARIN should not get involved with operational issues of reverse  
DNS. But that fact is ARIN does do reverse DNS delegation. When I do  
a dig on an IP, I see alot of ARIN servers in the output!
