The system seems to favor entities consuming space and wanting more. I 
assume I'll never request more space (I am not an ISP, so customer 
growth has no relation to my usage) or by the time I would, the lack of 
IPv4 space will prohibit an additional request. I don't feel it's fair 
be punished because I'm trying to be responsible with what I have.
