three things come to mind..

broken record
barrier to entry
dead lock

one of these is a sound you are making (: the second is nothing new, IP
space is a very nice example, big ISPs my want to protect theirs and they
may have a strong voice within ARIN.. which with your current way of
thinking brings us to number three.

Your idea that allowing 2003-15 will somehow have some negative effect on
2002-3 is pure speculation.. I speculate the reverse is true.
