[arin-ppml] policy idea for PA allocations]

 I am not privy to ARIN operational procedure, but even if it created more
requests it sounds like it would make for less work as staff would avoid
quilting patchwork blocks together to meet the request quantity.  Sounds
like an easier algorythm to automate or script.

Its an interesting idea.  I wonder how much it would increase the number of
requests the ARIN staff ends up processing per week though.  Given most
likely the Utilization percentile rule would be met much faster given the
requestor may end up with a much smaller size then they needed to get.

This could have two effects that I see right away.  One, distribution lasts
a smidge longer and spreads the remaining addresses out to a smidge more
larger of requestors.  Two ARIN staff gets an increase in the number of
requests due to requestors coming back much faster than before due to
decreased sizes that are granted.

I know this idea has alot more angles to it that can be pulled out of it.
But those are the first two that jump out at me.  Its possible that this
idea would be favorable to the smaller entities requesting space but it
could also end up not really making much of a difference at all.  If this
gets moved into a policy proposal I'll spend more analysis time on it.

Cheers

It sounds like a reduction in complexity to me..  You go to the store to buy
one item and get the biggest one they have in your color..  That meets your
immediate needs and if you need more you go back to the store..  Sounds
simple to me..
