I wanted to separate the ASN and PI block application processes, since it's
a totally separate function and has its own list of requirements.  I'd hate
to slip up and give a PI block to someone who never got an ASN.

I don't quite understand your added wording here...  If it's a new startup,
it won't have ANY PI IPs.  My intent was to automatically disqualify people
who already have large PI blocks (like, say, BBN who has 3 A's and a dozen
B's) from getting anything from the "New ISP" block.

Again, what does is mean, and what is the intended effect?

If we're going to go with 60 days, I'd like to see "capable of advertising"
changed to "advertising".  However, I don't see how you can enforce a
future requirement before allocation.  I chose 30 days since that's the
lead time for installing circuits from most LECs.
