[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal: Annual WHOIS POC Validation

Even 180 days would not be excessive considering we are dealing with a
situation that has existed for decades already.  Another six months is not
going to tip the canoe.

I'm curious as to why 14 days was chosen, and the mechanism used to update
the field in the event that the POC did not respond within that time-frame.

Thinking out loud, I suspect there are a fair number of entries that point
to a single contact e-mail address (as opposed to a group address).
With many employers offering up to six weeks of vacation time, where a
person might reasonably be expected to remain out of contact, two weeks
might prove to generate a fair number of false positives that would have to
be later remedied manually.

For a process that only runs once a year, surely six or eight weeks would
not impose an excessive burden either on ARIN or the POC's.
