[arin-ppml] Bootstrapping new entrants after IPv4 exhaustion

Steven,

Do you have some specific policy language (or can you point to specific
language from another region) to illustrate how you think new allocations
should be appropriately sized?  I understand that you want something
simpler and more liberal than both the current ISP and end-user
requirements, but I'm not completely clear on what that would look like.

Thanks,
Scott
