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

I oppose the "equitable distribution" policy because I don't believe
it will create equitable distribution.

However, I do support the idea of preserving a certain amount of
space to be allocated as direct assignments/allocations strictly for
transitional purposes.  We now have a policy proposal for that
which Matt and I are shepherding.

I think that there needs to be a certain amount of space set aside to
support transitional technologies or we may end up with a catch-22
in the end-game.
