[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal: Equitable Distribution of IPv4 Resources before IPv4 Run out

I agree with Martin.While it seems to me that large ISPs are vilified for
requiring more space than smaller organizations, I need to speak to the fact
that they provide space to downstream customers who will _never_ qualify for
PI space.  We must not forget the true little guys - the /29 customers, the
/28 customers - that large ISPs provide space for.  This policy could
effectively cheat the itty bitty guys out of legitimately needed business
I continue to support an organic depletion of the free pool without
complication by policy specifically designed to control that process.
