[arin-ppml] 2-byte ASN policy

I believe both times I requested an ASN last year (my IX and my ISP) they asked if I wanted a 2 byte or a 4 byte. For the IX, I chose 2 and for my ISP I chose 4.

We are recycling ASN’s that are returned - after the hold period we confirm that
they’re not in active routing and then will reissue if someone makes an explicit
request for a 2-byte ASN.
If a 2-byte ASN comes available and no one immediately requests an explicit 2-byte ASN, will you reissue the 2-byte ASN to the next non-explicit ASN requester (who presumably would be just as happy with a 4-byte ASN), or do you keep the 2-byte ASN in inventory until the next explicit 2-byte ASN request?
