[arin-ppml] Multi-homing justification removed?

The changes implemented in ARIN-2014-13, specifically the removal of 4.3.2.2, appear to have removed the multi-homing justification for a /24 for end users.  Previously, the need to multi-home, and proof of contracts with multiple upstream providers, was sufficient to justify a /24 to participate in BGP.

For reassignments from ISPs, the language remains in 4.2.3.6.  Users can justify a /24 via a requirement to multi-home rather than utilization rate.  However this revision appears to leave utilization rate as the only criterion for direct end-user assignments.

Was this the intent or possibly an overlooked side effect of the change?
