[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2014-18: Simplifying Minimum Allocations and Assignments

I think the bigger problem is the concept as a whole.

To qualify for a /24 (which will be the new minimum for end users and ISPs
alike if the ARIN Board adopts 2014-13, which has been recommended to it),
you need to justify the use of 204 addresses in the next three months. This
is an extremely low bar to justify.

This proposal as written would mean anyone with any kind of business
license can just go up to ARIN and get a free /24 every year, no matter if
they are actually going to need it or even use it. Doesn't matter if you're
a shell corporation, or your local corner store. Free /24 for everybody.

Doesn't make a ton of sense.
