I have a hard time with this statement. Why do "midsize business X"
"deserve" portable addresses when "non-midsize business Y" do not?
This is a non-technical justification.

The current policy isn't just about doing what we would *like* to
do. It's also very much about doing something that won't cause major
problems down the road when, say, there are a million "midsize
businesses" with their own perhaps not-so-portable-anymore space.
