[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-180 ISP Private Reassignment

ISP is still bound by the RSA.  I think we should assume innocence before proven guilty.

Somewhere in the PDP process, I think ARIN staff would comment on effort/impact.  I agree that it could be nontrivial.

Opposed. This has the effect of removing all public accountability for
the ARIN-region consumers of IP addresses. It makes our reliance on
ARIN absolute and, without public scrutiny, the community is placed in
a position where it will have to demand ARIN engage in much more
expensive auditing practices to assure ISPs with private whois entries
are not cheating.
