Support. This should be a no-op for actual allocations, but improves clarity and consistency.

> Under the current ARIN waitlist policy (section 4.1.8), ARIN now only issues IPv4 assignments/allocations (excluding section 4.4 and 4.10 space) from the ARIN waitlist. The maximum size aggregate for which an organization may qualify at any one time is a /22. On the other hand, the current initial allocations to ISPs policy (section 4.2.2) provides that direct assignments or allocations from ARIN qualify for an initial allocation of up to a /21, subject to ARIN’s minimum allocation size. This proposal seeks to resolve the conflict in the maximum allocation size requirements between the two sections in favour of the requirement in the waitlist policy, since that is the one that is intended to govern at the present time. Reconciling the policy language as proposed herein will avoid confusion by readers of the NRPM.
