I'm not commenting on the merit of the proposal, but on its

Is this intended to mean swamp space can remain swampy, but other
space can't be subdivided in /24?  It looks like it says the block
must meet minimum transfer size, unless it's a /24 or larger.

I can transfer my hypothetical /16 as 254 /24s and keep one for myself?
