I missed one:
* It was pointed out that a PA allocation of a given size results in an
additional block of equal size being set aside for future growth.
This is not done for PI space.
I actually have been looking at this, and haven't been able to find any
reference to this practice in section 4 of the NRPM. It's certainly
possible that I'm just missing it. I suspect that either both PA and
PI are actually treated in the same way, or there is a difference, but
it's due to differences in policy implementation, and not in the policy
itself. (Perhaps staff can comment on that.)
Unless there's a real difference in how reservations of space are made
in the NRPM, I think this point is, perhaps, a red herring.
