The goal of the policy is to promote increased efficiency and  
encourage transition any time any ISP requests additional address  
space.  For simplicity, fairness, and consistency's sake, I believe  
it inappropriate to create loopholes based on a particular access  
technology or how an organization decides to partition their  
network.  As such, the utilization requirements in section 4.2.6  
(second bullet) and section 4.5.5 should be modified to correspond  
with the utilization based on thresholds as defined in the proposal.

I referenced SWIP and rwhois because the NPRM as it exists references  
SWIP and rwhois.  I'm happy to remove those references.

As mentioned in previous discussions on this proposal, due to limited  
time I focused on the consumers of the vast majority of address  
space.  If the community feels it appropriate, I am happy to create a  
separate proposal that focuses on end users.
