I think that there's almost enough information to get people on the same
page. We're still not sure what the "final" inventory of address space will
be with respect to the last /8's; 3 x /8 at the end or 1 x /8 at the end to
add to whatever may be in reserve. Reserve pools are allowed for under the
current global allocation policy and are not counted when seeking new /8's.

The idea is somewhat of a continued transition and supporting the presence
of a v4 network for "some" period of time beyond exhaustion, among other
things, isn't it?
