It sounds like a proposal for an allocation/assignment policy to me.
Changing the policy from "We give you what you need" to "We give 
you the single closest match we have" would be a IRPEP item.  IMHO,
and I haven't asked the rest of the Board.  Not sure how I'd vote if
it came to the Board.  For external use only.  Do not eat soap.  OK!
