If we really want to see organizations relinquish space to below /20 
boandary (this creating new micro-assignments) then we must have new fee 
schedule that takes care of micro-assignments properly. This issue of 
changing fee schedule with more layers for smaller blocks has been hanging 
around ARIN for a while. It been mentioned in Las Vegas and Eugene and 
financial comitee did promise to work on it since ARIN has quite good 
positive revenue but nothing has come to that so far... But it would 
really be usefull if we want 2002-5 and 2002-6 to actually be used for 
blocks < /20.
