If I need exactly 240 IP addresses, and can justify the same then I
can reasonably expect to get a /24 either via transfer or assignment,
no?  If I can only justify 240, then I will NEVER be able to get
addresses via the STLS, as that is not a single aggregate.

I think we need to give staff some flexibility to allow them to do
their job within the spirit of the policies.
