[arin-ppml] Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2022-11: Clean-up of NRPM – Introduction of Section 2.17

I support adding a definition for the term Number Resources to the
definitions in section 2 of the NRPM. However, I don't think it should be
identified as section 2.17, even though that is the next number for that
section. When I look at section 2 as a whole, I believe the term Number
Resources logically belongs near the top of the list and not near the
bottom of the list.

Further, if added to the top of the list, the added details of Bill's
proposed definition seem much more appropriate to me.

Finally, I suggest looking at section 2 as a whole, including the
introduction and diagram, then how and where the definition of the term
Number Resources is best added, and not just the text of the definition to
be added.
