[arin-ppml] Revised - Draft Policy ARIN-2020-8: Clarify and Update 4.2.1.2 Annual Renewal Fee

Question: Does this change affect in any way the services provided by
ARIN to legacy holders who are not under (L)RSA?  The new wording
proposed for section 2 doesn't seem to account for that category.  My
thought is to simply delete 4.2.1.2 and be done with it.  Does the NRPM
need to include a definition of the RSA?

thanks,
michael
