I guess that's the question though.  If a company can get 8 /32's
around the world, should our allocation policies somehow allow them
to get a /29 they can subdivide into /32's from a single RIR, and
then nothing from others?  That preserves the ability to aggregate,
while the current scheme of getting them from multiple RIR's at
different times does not.
