[arin-ppml] ARIN Response to AFRINIC on Policy compatibility

Back when we were concerned that our regional free pool might precipitously empty (perhaps via some unforeseen loophole in our transfer regimen) I supported the reciprocity requirement, as a potential countermeasure against that outcome. 

Now that there is no longer a free pool to worry about, this clause has outlived its usefulness. 

I support removing the reciprocity requirement.
