On straight math, you're right...

(8 + 12 + 16 + 29 + 57 + 11 + 70) / 7 = 29 per year, average.  5
years worth is 145 /24's.  A /16 is 256, the next amount larger.

But a /17 (128 /24's) would translate to four and a half years, so
going to a /15 or /14 seems a bit uncalled for to me.

To me a 16 or 17 would be the right number, but could probably
support anything from a 15 to an 18 without too much fuss.

We also need to be sure the wording here allows for discontiguous
space, we don't need a /16 all together.  If ARIN has dribs and
drabs of /24's this is a /perfect/ use for them, while not all
micro-allocations are /24's I think that's by far the largest number
and they are generally used in non-aggregatable ways.
