[arin-ppml] IPv6 /32 minimum for extra-small ISP

Thanks for the feedback.

I think my original question should be rephrased.. not to reduce the minimum
allocation size, but to modify pricing for ISP who obtain v4 space under the
existing v4 multi-homing policy and are currently in the 'extra-small' fee

I don't feel it is a fair policy to bump us into 'small' fee schedule just to
obtain v6 as an ISP currently under the 'extra-small' v4 fee schedule -- at
least until we have utilized enough v4 to qualify as 'small'.

What do you guys think?
