[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2016-8: Removal of Indirect POC Validation Requirement

As a former (and possibly current) assignee of a SWIP reassignment one of
the larger issues is I had no idea I had multiple POCs created by the ISPs
in the first place.

Prior to getting my current assignment, the ISP I was using created a POC
for each SWIP it remembered to do.  Thus I had POCa, POCb ... POCn, one for
each circuit/address combo from each ISP.   Even after doing multiple
searches I am not sure I have found them all.

I think the validation is important but I also think there should be a BCP
(if there is not one already) for creation/management/sharing of customer
POCs.  If I am a new customer and I don't already have a POC one would be
created and relayed to me.  If in 6 months I needed another SWIP that same
POC would be used.  If I moved/added another ISP the same POC would be
used. When I need to verify what resources someone thinks I have I only
need to check one POC to verify what resources are assigned/allocated to it.

There should also be a stick.  I don't know the form of the stick but those
creating the third party POCs should be held accountable when they 1) don't
do them and 2) do them wrong.
