[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-153 Correct erroneous syntax in NRPM 8.3

This requirement would create additional incentives for parties to engage in 
a deal, but to avoid telling ARIN about it.
And particularly early in the transfer market, there may not be enough 
supply to ensure that every sized single-aggregate will be available for the 
same cost as the sum of a bunch of smaller purchases.
What does the buyer do then?
In other words, supposed the buyer is sized like Microsoft and has a need 
for 660,000 addresses?
How long must they wait for a seller to appear?
The effect of this policy would be for an entity with justified needs to be 
unable to use an aggregate of smaller, but available blocks, and for those 
smaller blocks to be left on the sidelines.
Neither of these things comports with our role as stewards to get addresses 
into productive use.
