I also do not see that connection.

During previous discussions surrounding this proposal, we seemed to
gain consensus that different address blocks are in different
circumstances and may require longer or shorter hold-down periods to
be useful. We also discussed the fact that as there is less and less
IPv4 address space available, it may become prudent to shorten the
hold-downs to get space out to those who have immediate need,
irregardless of any "dirtiness" of the block. The last thing discussed
was the varying workload of staff and their ability to meet an
arbitrary time limit. Overall it appears that the best way to deal
with this varied and changing environment it to provide guidance to
ARIN staff (as soon as practicable) and let them determine the exact
hold-down period necessary. If you feel that this is not the best
course of action - we (the AC and particularly the shepherds of this
proposal) would love to get that feedback!
