[arin-ppml] LACNIC proposal to create a global internet registry

20 years ago, we had a global registry.  At the time, the idea of having
locally tuned support (TZ, language, etc.) was considered a higher priority
than the coherency of a single GIR.  But then at the time, the IANA
actually had a much more active role in administering policy for what
passed as the GIR.  In the case of IPv4 and ASNs, I think a GIR would be a
very good idea.  I think the RIRs still have a valuable role to play in
