[arin-ppml] 4.4 Micro Allocations and IXP requirements

When I got my IXP allocation I was told that I couldn't host any 
infrastructure on it -  web sites, monitoring boxes, mail servers and 
that it was only to be given out to exchange members.  I use other IP 
space to host the exchange's web, mail and monitoring services.

It seems like a pretty poor way to "game the system" and get IP space 
since it's a /24 and the initial scrutiny is pretty tough.
