[arin-ppml] 4.4 Micro Allocations and IXP requirements

Just for reference the policy with regard to IXPs says this below.  I
believe that the point was that the IXP had to have at least two customers
and all this other information that they are providing a credible IXP in
order to get a micro allocation.

"Exchange point operators must provide justification for the allocation,
including: connection policy, location, other participants (minimum of two
total), ASN, and contact information. ISPs and other organizations
receiving these micro-allocations will be charged under the ISP fee
schedule, while end-users will be charged under the fee schedule for
end-users. This policy does not preclude exchange point operators from
requesting address space under other policies."
