hrm, I don't think the prior efficient utilization requirements were
waved. Just the need to show either:
o need to use a transition tech (and then get a block from a separate
set-aside block marked for this)
o need to show that the new deployment was somehow outside of the
original planned deployment(s).

the second part there is really for 'hey, we have to deploy this whole
new network over here, with v6... oops, our current /32 is
dedicated/allocated/appointed-for-use on our existing deployment...
which is just starting to roll out so we can't show 75% of the /48's
assigned, doh!'  sort of problems. (which I've seen in more than one
instance in the last 2 years... fyi).
