[ppml]How far is too far?

Text forwarded to the list by me earlier proposed that barring unanticipated
problems with route table growth, etc. that the boundary would advance from
/22 to /23 in a year.  There was some feedback that suggested a year my be
to limited a timeframe for the impact evaluation.... this because it will
take time for the knowledge that smaller assignments are available to become
well known and therefore for the full number of requests to be made and also
it takes time for those assignments to make their way into the production
environment.  Subsequent to movement to /23 another waiting and analysis
period would determine the ability to move again to /24 where the process
would stop..........again, this was simply a statement of intent related to
the 2002-3 policy proposal, not something embedded in the policy itself.
