There has to be a limit documented somewhere.  I don't think
ARIN should allocate more address space to an ISP who blows
their /32 by assigning /30s to customers of all sizes.  I don't 
think the current policy is clear what that limit is.  I don't 
care what that limit is, but clear policy is needed.

We do put similar limitations on IPv4, requiring 80%

ISP members have asked what they're supposed to do to make
sure they can get their subsequent allocation, should they
need one.  I think ARIN should be able to hassle an 
applicant for a second allocation if they've been stupid, 
but we need to document what "stupid" looks like.

Yes, that was a straight line.  Go for it.
