[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2018-1 - Allow Inter-Regional ASN Transfers

ARIN's current inter-RIR transfer policy is IPv4 only, the intent of this
proposal is to add ASNs.  The current policy for within the ARIN region
allows both ipv4 and ASNs.

IPv6 transfers are currently not allowed, except in the case of M&A
transfers.  We could consider IPv6 transfers, but as Job says "that is
a different
topic and worthy of its own thread."
