Good policies are as simple as possible. You don't give any argument
why a smaller uniform allocation size would not work for the whole
ARIN region.

It would be great if the ARIN staff could research for us what they
expect what the impact would be on the routing table when changing the
minimum allocation size for everybody. In fact, this might make even
more sense in the context of the soon to be expected exhaustion of
IPv4 address space.
