Exactly.  If one were required to have an allocation first, it'd be  
easy to get -- justified or not.  In fact, to qualify for the anycast  
allocation as its currently proposed one would already meet the  
requirements for the /22 multihoming requirements.

I don't think anyone is suggesting that the proposal be modified to  
add that.   As Alec pointed out, it was just a comment in discussion,  
not a suggested proposal change.
