I understand.  I am actually OK with staff discretion on this, but,
I can see both sides of that coin.

Actually, they are not.  Today, to qualify for a /22 in IPv4,
you must show use of a /23 (510 unique addresses), so, technically,
you have doubled the requirement (plus a little).

Well... To my reading, you've come a whole lot closer to what I
consider acceptable requirements vs. my original interpretation
of your use of the term large organizations.

I will here publicly state that I, personally am willing to have both
alternatives presented together during the 2005-1 presentation.  I don't
know how Kevin feels about this, and, I don't know what rules, if any,
may preclude it.  However, I'd be happy to share the podium with you
if that works for the AC/BOT and Kevin, my 2005-1 co-author.
