Why would you want to preclude the use of legacy ASNs and/or ASNs issued
by other registries?

Otherwise, I'm generally OK with the policy, but, would be strongly in favor
of it at 100 sites rather than 200 as I do know of ISPs that are smaller than
200 sites, are not multihomed, but, are legitimate.
