As a competitive ISP, that would sound like a bad strategy.
As a stewardship organization, the good of the whole trumps the
desire of the one with the checkbook.  If we can accomodate both,
then by all means let's do.  

Running out of addresses again or building in unscalable structures 
sound like they'd be bad for the whole.  Some of us disagree on
the likelihood of those propositions, so we debate.  Smart people can
come to different beliefs of what the future will bring.
