At this point, does it really matter? The practical issues of 
disaggregation have more to do with ASN routing policies/practices than 
allocations. While I agree that the RIR shouldn't compound the problem, 
in the later stages of IPv4, I think it's unavoidable and will have 
marginal effect. Obviously, retaining minimums of allocation size still 
matters, but routing policies themselves generally assist in protecting 
that boundary.

(buying 15million bgp routes, 8million forwarding path routers now, 
rather than later)
