[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2023-3: Amendment of the waitlist agreement to include a restriction on leasing

In my experience many small resource holders have their upstreams announce their blocks so they don't need their own BGP connection.

For example enterprises that like the freedom to shop around for ISPs without renumbering.

I am opposed to this policy as the existing waiting-list guard-rails are sufficient for this bugbear.

And the waiting list will melt away like the witch in the Wizard of Oz anyway. The day it is regularly replenished is the day when IPv4 has no value.

Fuzzy language. What is leasing? Suggest something more like:

"If announced on the public Internet, address space distributed from
the waitlist shall be announced only by the direct ARIN registrant
until 60 months after receipt."
