[ppml] Policy 2002-5

The block an organization would exchange would be for a smaller block only.
The goal is for organizations to turn in space they are already not using,
or could free up by consolidation.

much better reading...

could this policy possibly be used to exchange blocks?

meaning.. get one of the SAME size because the original is getting 'dirty'
(blocked by blacklist etc?). I hope that the wording "shall receive a
smaller block", really means a SMALLER block; not one of the same size.
