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

OK... Here's the actual information...
If you are currently an IPv4 x-small ISP subscriber, you are already paying $1,250/year.
As such, your incremental cost when you obtain a /32 for IPv6 would be an additional $1,000/year.
If you are a brand new IPv6-only ISP, your annual cost would be $2,250/year.
So, the $2,250 number is sort of correct, but, ignores that you are already paying
most of that. I think the $1,250 figure is a math error vs. $2,250 - $1,250 = $1,000.
Hope that clears things up.
