Oh, but then you will have the "Sky is Falling", lets not
make the same mistake and have swamp space issues.  :) :) :(

Personally, I'd like to have a small "public" prefix.  Then
I would bring up v6 services on various machines and start
doing testing, knowledge growth, and helping others deploy.

A /35 or similar and I'd never need space again....

Bill, since you are now a BOT, and the BOT is clearly the
place where things happen within ARIN, maybe we can see
some clarity happen.....
