Find and recover is a non-starter because it costs too much money
for ARIN to do this kind of detailed audit.

Efficient utilization is unknown without audits. 

Therefore, make the set-aside policy only available for orgs whose
address allocations are less than a certain threshold.

P.S. Fairness is irrelevant. Any set aside policy is unfair. Doing nothing is unfair.
Life is unfair. We aren't here to change the world, just to reduce the chaos and
disorder of the IPv6 transition.
