Good idea.  John's 2 level sounds reasonable to me. 
The enforcement issue remains, though.  Does the Registry contact the
upstream and the organization?  Notices of Action that routing of the old
block(s) will be discontinued 30 days prior? As someone said at the meeting,
we should have a stick to go with the carrot.  (Was that Bill W.?)

I basically agree that a renumbering timetable is necessary and that is
should try to be compassionate without leading to procrastination...we want
to motivate the return behavior. I also agree that people should be prepared
for the migration by the time they take advantage of the policy.  Perhaps
there is a middle ground that would 'scale'... maybe a maximum of 3 levels.
3 months for aggregates smaller than /22, 6 months for /22-/20 and 12 months
for larger than /20.  Would this be too cumbersome?  What about only 2
