  I'd have to agree with you here. I've challenged the applicability of HD
to this situation and did not receive any responses. I would think there
would have to be good reson to make changes that waste additional space.
  I still think there's confusion between allocations, assignments, and 
(the dual-purpose word) utilization. Perhaps if that was cleared up, this 
policy would no longer have any traction.
