[arin-ppml] ARIN discontinuing DNSSEC capability to legacy holders

Ever since the "legacy resource holders get the same services that they
received upon ARIN’s formation" we knew it was only a matter of time before
some new-but-now-critical service (RPKI, DNSSEC, addition of some required
new Whois field, etc.) was denied to them. The "stick" part of the "carrot
and stick" approach to getting people to sign a service agreement.

The addresses I use are not under a service agreement, and I will continue
to use them, (and fight for them to be fully usable no matter what new
features become mandatory for a registrar to support against an address
block for the operator community to route or otherwise accept that block)
without such agreement, to communicate on the Internet.
