Organisations are not permanent. If the administration using the prefix goes
away then shouldn't the prefix be reclaimed? Also, isn't it at least some
what possible that the need for a prefix go away? Should that organisation
be forced to keep an uneeded prefix, especially when others likely do need
it?

Dumb question.

The complaint with ULAs as presently formulated is that there is a non-zero
probability of them colliding.

If you give a prefix to your favorite admin and have them number their
network with it, and then re-assign the prefix to someone else, what's the
probability that you have a collision?

I think you need to accept that once put into use, a ULA will be in use by
that administration permanently. You obviously see otherwise.  Fill me in?
