[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2020-7: 4.4 gTLD Micro-allocation Clarification

A little history: gTLD and CI policy was intended to be temporary while the
v6 game played out. Exhaustion was the consideration. Prematurely stunting
the "new gTLD" expansion was the concern. The policy was for name servers
and enabling anycast for them. There were grand expectations back then
hence "new". See https://bit.ly/3duaEJc

Sticking with the text change, seems like it doesn't matter. Why not just
do it editorially? It doesn't change a thing.

Warm regards,
