The NRPM 4.10 block will be rapidly consumed by the organizations that
move first. This leaves every other organization without a means for
acquiring transition addresses. Proposal 130 is specifically about
addressing *every other organization*.
There is no danger of "creating a large pool of space reserved for ASNs
that will not likely ever use it" because, if IPv6 transition is
successful, there will be a huge surplus of IPv4 space and these
reservations will just be a drop in the bucket at that point.
I would support putting a deadline by which the space must be claimed,
but I fear that any reasonable deadline would be after the point where
it doesn't matter.
