[arin-ppml] Proposal - Remove Initial Small Assignment Requirements for IPv6

The answer to this was supposed to be sending perferred lifetime=0 
broadcasts from the router out on down networks, forcing the devices over 
to one of the remaining networks that are active for new connections. 
The issue of only operating on one of the two or more networks is not an 
issue, as long as the traffic is distributed close to equal among the 
available active networks which can be done by simply splitting your 
bandwidth over more than one provider.

However most current IPv6 stacks will not shut down the broken route, and 
herein is the problem.  If that problem could be solved, multihome for the 
masses would be much much easier, without any expansion of the v6 routing 
table like is required to use the BGP solution.  This is the problem that 
I wish the IETF would help us solve.
