[arin-ppml] Draft Policy 2009-1: Transfer Policy - Revisedandforwarded to the Board

Scott, I think your right but keep the following in mind
Let's say the first year the ISP obtains a /20. A year later
they have reached 80% on this and get a second /20.
A year later on this they have reached 80% on the second
and get a third /20
This happens for 5 years in a row. At the end of the 5 years
even though they have 80% utilization on all /20's, and can
request another /20 by the rules, the fact is that they now
have a /20's worth of unused IP addresses.
Perhaps we need a policy change that states that additional
IPv4 allocation requests from ISP's cannot equal or be smaller
than the amount of unallocated space they already have,
regardless of the 80 percentile rule?
