To be clear, it supports the assertion that everyone getting a /24
will not hurt the routing table, not that ARIN should assign /24's.

Perhaps the way to do this is to just conservatively limit the "test
program".  That is, move ARIN's boundry to /24, but if ARIN will
be limited to no more than 200 networks per month between /20 (the
current limit) and /24), for the first year, at which time the proposal
must be renewed to be continued.

So, that's a maximum exposure of 2400 new routes globally (about 2%
increase, worst case).  If that actually happens after a year it can be
voted down as a failed experiment, but if as I believe the real rate 
is an addital 20-50 requests per month on average giving us modest
growth it can be reapproved, possibly without the cap moving forward.
