[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2014-7: Section 4.4 Micro Allocation Conservation Update

I oppose the policy as written.

I don't have an opinion on the 2 vs 3, though I see it as such a small
change and given the total number of CI IX assignments (66 over how many
years?) it won't significantly change anything.

I am opposed to the policy because of this line " IXP's formed as non
profits will be considered end user organizations. All others will be
considered ISPs."

 This statement will impact the overwhelming majority of Critical
Infrastructure assignment holders, the majority of which are not IX's.  The
goal of attempting  preservation should be done by how the allocation is
justified, not how much the entity is billed.   111 of the CI allocations
are not to IX's.  Of the 66 IX allocations it is nearly split between end
users and ISP's.
