[arin-ppml] Unintended Consequence of 2014-17

-17 makes needs testing more fair for smaller organizations. In terms
of larger organizations, it isn't at all practical to have a /8 and
spend even a minute of your day to request something much, much
smaller. That would be like me requesting a /24 right now. I would
never do that :)

I get the sense that some of the community feels I have an ulterior
motive for supporting this proposal given my concurrent support of
something similar to -14.

Thanks, Jeff
