This is the key line of this proposal.

My first thought had been to support (or even propose) this.  But when I
thought about it, I decided that this proposal would encourage organizations
to submit poorly-documented or spurious requests for address space, just
so they would be "in queue" at the time of runout.  So, an org with 70%
utilization would submit an application, and dawdle in responses to ARIN;
after IANA runout, and after they hit 80%, they would complete their

I therefore oppose this proposal.
