I question why a "needs based" allocation ought to be abandoned 
within ARIN as ARIN's (new) v4 pool is nearing depletion.  I don't 
think it is up to ARIN to play favorites, which is what this policy 
does.  ARIN isn't here to protect the small fry from the big fry or 
to help the big fry get bigger.

Perhaps we ought to reserve the last /8 only for NAT-PT boxes 
addresses. ;)  But that is as far as I'd go.

Never confuse activity with progress.  Activity pays more.
