[arin-ppml] New Policy Proposal

At this time, I'm going in favor of advancing this proposal.
I support the concept, but the ARIN region contains multiple
jurisdictions and has a requirement to attempt to balance policy for
fairness across all of them. Achieving this balance by insuring that
utilization requirements are applied broadly vs. narrowly is entirely
I would instead suggest that we address utilization holistically by
either lowering the threshold to 50% across the board or waiving them
altogether for transfers. But we're re-arranging the deck chairs as
the ship is rolling over at this point.
This proposal also brings to mind the comments that Cameron Byrne made
recently related to the definition of wireless access services e.g.
residential or commercial and their implications on utilization and
transfer. His comments should also be considered and addressed as part
of a much more generalized edit of this proposal. If we are going to
address utilization, let's do it holistically.
