25 x /8 is a proposition, we can come out of this discussion with 20, 15
x /8s, etc.

Not true. At that time the RIR will received their last allocations. If
there are not policies changes at the RIRs, organizations will continue
to receive allocations as usual untill its RIR pool is exhausted.
However, each RIR will be able to have their own "soft landing" policies
or any policies to sub-allocate with this "last allocation".

How sooner?  10 months? 12 months? that is why this policies helps each
RIR to focus on their communities needs when the central IPv4 pool is
emptying.
