[arin-ppml] Clarify /29 assignment identification requirement

My interpretation of this proposal is not removing the ability of ARIN to require details on customers with less than 8 addresses, but more moving it to a last resort.

A couple questions:
- Is this how ARIN staff would interpret this proposal?
- How does this differ from right now? I would suspect that digging into this detail level would be only happen today, if other reasonable methods of verification were exhausted.
- Is this what the author intended, or was it meant to stop this practice all together? Much of the discussion seems to be around completely removing the ability of ARIN to ask into this level of detail, however that's not how I interpret what was written.

> Per http://lists.arin.net/pipermail/arin-ppml/2012-April/024523.html ,
> ARIN believes the /29 border for identifying customers called out
> seven distinct times in the NRPM applies only to publication of such

> that the identity of such small consumers of IP addresses remain a
> private matter between the ISP and its customer.
