Whom are you referring to as "open market folks"?  In the case of 
2008-2, the goal is to keep deaggregation pressures the same as they 
would be under a continuation of the current system (if we had more 
addresses to give out).  In other words, I believe that the 
extrapolation of current routing table size trend lines that Schiller 
et. al. have presented represents the eventual situation under 2008-2 
about as well as possible given the inherent uncertainties.

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure that the proposed APNIC policy would 
result in an acceleration of routing table growth, which to my knowledge 
has not been modeled.
