It was never my intention to alter the AS Number assignment policy to allow 
the request of specific numbers.

Now the policy, as written, had a definition of "4-Byte only AS Numbers" in 
the terminology section, and I suspect that this definition is adequate in 
terms of equating this phrase with the concept of numbers with non-zero 
high order bits.
