I think the AC is in general for smaller allocations, please don't
interpret my frustration as a belief otherwise.  However I fully
understand the AC needs to find community support before acting,
and my impression is that is the problem with this issue.  Further,
it's not that the community is vocally against it, but rather that
very few people will stand up and be for it.

I think it would be at least two years before we know the impact
of such a proposal.  That gives enough time for people to be aware
it's available, incorporate that into their own plans, implment cut
overs, and return old space they are no longer using.

My apologies.  I misinterpreted earlier e-mail that the comments were
part of the policy itself, but I see now they were adjunct comments.
