[arin-ppml] Bootstrapping new entrants after IPv4 exhaustion

Owen,

I agree with you that we need to avoid the deadly embrace: that is the main
reason for proposing this, so we're in full agreement there.

I'm not sure that it would be a good idea, though, to let any organization,
not matter how small, get an IPv4 /24 from ARIN's free pool without any
real restrictions.  I am much more comfortable allowing an organization to
get such a /24 via transfer, where they have to have at least enough need
for the space to justify spending the money for it.

In any event, I wonder if we should first focus on the less controversial
fix, and make sure that anyone who can justify the need for a /24 or larger
can get it somehow or other, and separately look into the possibility of
portable space for organizations needing less than a /24.
