[arin-ppml] Bootstrapping new entrants after IPv4 exhaustion

I think the easy fix here is remove the requirement to already be using a
/20, and instead have them provide strong justification about how the
addresses will be used in the next 90 days for ISPs, in the next year for
end sites, and in the next two years for transfers.

I'm thinking something like immediate need, where they have some real data
to show how the addresses will be used, but not necessarily in the next 30
days.

Possibly VC commitment to spend on purchasing 3,000 servers (each booking 1
IP) or 3,000 residential customer pre-orders, or 1,500 residential customer
pre-orders, and a business plan to use revenue booked to deploy a second
equally sized market in the time.

Basically if you have the IP justification to get a /20 from your ISP, then
submit that to ARIN and get a /21 slow start.  Use it and come back.
