That wasn't the point.  We as participants don't have any greater need
than those that do not.  You're suggesting that my organization gets to
greedily take space ahead of some other organization that may need it
first, more urgently, when I still have a free pool left I'm allocating
from and that organization may not.

While I would love to hoard some IPv4 to stave off my local runout, this
is completely against the spirit of the existing allocation process.
