The fact that you believe existing practice differs from what ARIN  
staff states is the current requirements raises interesting questions.

I modified my proposal to its current form based on input from ARIN  
staff that if my previous version were to be implemented, it would  
actually reduce utilization requirements.  If you believe the  
existing utilization requirements are "impossible", this is something  
that you may wish to raise with ARIN staff and/or via the public  
policy process.
