[arin-ppml] 4.4 Micro Allocations and IXP requirements

Someone pointed me at 4.4 and noted that it says that an IXP can receive an
allocation if two parties are present. The common understanding in the
industry is that two parties connected are private peering and three on a
common switch "could" be an IXP.

Is there a reason not to bump this number up to three in light of
prevailing circumstances and conservation of the infrastructure pool? If
two is arbitrarily low, it's a good time to make three arbitrarily low. I
think it would be wise in terms of insuring that resources are being used
effectively.

Thoughts?
