Michael,

I disagree.  We know that at some point someone will need a subsequent
allocation.  It may be sooner than we think.  Since we know it's going to
happen we need to have a policy for it.  Further we should try to have the
best policies we can regardless of how many allocations are currently being
given out.

Thanks
----Cathy
