If the proposal passes, a flood of requests before IANA runout results in
faster IPv4 depletion, since everyone in the flood gets 12 months' need.

After IANA runout, the flood will be handled as normal, but with 3 months'
need satisfied.

For those whose goal is providing connectivity, accelerating runout is bad.
For those whose goal is deploying IPv6, regardless of connectivity,
runout is good.
Since I support a more stable Internet, I oppose accelerating depletion.
