[arin-ppml] ARIN-2011-6: Returned IPv4 Addresses - Last Call

[author] The original intent was to keep the addresses under the
supervision of the ARIN region, permanently not to await a global
policy describing how the IANA can distribute addresses including and
longer than a /8. The new text contravenes ICP2 to some extent.
