I don't see it documenting any harm. It sounds to me like network
engineer who doesn't understand networking 101 didn't realize that
you cannot take IP addresses with you when you move and therefore
made some serious mistakes in infrastructure that did not allow
the customer (Democrats?) to renumber easily.

Then they should transition to IPv6, get a /48, and build their network
so that it can easily renumber if that /48 prefix changes. No more pain.
