[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2013-4: RIR Principles

Since a global RIR policy is defined as a policy that directly affects the
interaction between RIRs and the IANA, this cannot by definition be a
global RIR policy.  There is no mechanism for any other kind of global RIR
policy.  Since it 2050bis will replace 2050 and it seemed that we would be
unable to get these items in 2050bis, some of us felt that getting them
into ARIN policy would be helpful.   Maybe other RIRs would follow suit.

I agree that these shouldn't be changed very often at all.
