The whole policy proposal is nuts.

If ARIN can't give out a /14 because there is no single free block
big enough, they should just send an email saying:

Here's some good news and some bad news. We just approved your
allocation, however, we don't have any /14 or bigger sized 
blocks left. The biggest free block available is a /16.
We could either give you that and consider the request to be
completed, or we could give you 3 /16s and 2 /17s to make
up the equivalent number of IP addresses out of several

How do you want to proceed?

That doesn't need any new policy just common sense. It also doesn't
need to waste everybody's time on PPML arguing over the last table
