2002-3 was adopted and it says nothing about utilization.
This is the text of 2002-3:
   Multi-homed organizations may justify and obtain a block 
   of address space with prefix length extending to /22 
   directly from ARIN. When prefixes are longer than /20, 
   these micro-allocations or micro-assignments will be from 
   a reserved block for that purpose. 

Nevertheless, we still need a publicly agreed definition
of "utilized" and an agreed way to calculate utilization
