[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2017-6: Improve Reciprocity Requirements for Inter RIR Transfers

The problem statement of this draft policy identifies a theoretical
problem, but provides no evidence that there is an actual problem in
practice.
Further, the proposed solution penalizes both good and bad actors within a
region indiscriminately and probably disproportionally as well. As such
without strong evidence of an actual problem and without any understanding
of the efficacy of the solution in practice, I cannot support this draft
policy as written.

Thanks.
