IMO this would have a substantial negative effect on the number of
routes in the IPv4 routing table.  The reason for keeping the 8.3
supply at 12 months was because we expect that a large fraction of 8.3
transfers will result in deaggregation of a larger block into multiple
smaller blocks.  If transfer recipients are required to get a new
transfer every 3 months instead of every 12, we can expect 4 times as
much demand for deaggregation in such situations.
