[arin-ppml] Further opposition to 2012-3

In addition to the arguments already stated, I believe that 2012-3 is detrimental and not technically sound policy in the following way:

It will continue to promote the (unique to the ARIN region) perception that 32-bit ASNs are not usable and create an artificial value and resulting market in ASNs where the first 16 bits are zero.

This could further delay implementation of 32-bit ASN support in our region and create an unfair disadvantage for organizations that cannot obtain ASNs with the high-order 16 bits set to zero other than through the transfer market.

As such, I remain strenuously opposed to this draft policy being forwarded to the board for adoption.
