[arin-ppml] ULA-C and reverse DNS

If ULA-Central is not going to include authoritative reverse DNS, then 
I'm not sure the point of doing ULA-Central.  One of the biggest problem 
I have with RFC1918 is the brain damage it causes in DNS, ULA-Random has 
this same brain damage.  I see no point in doing ULA-Central if it 
doesn't include reverse DNS too.
