I'm not sure I understand this concern.  The NRPM allows all sorts of
inefficiencies; for instance, you are allowed to put a public IP on
every PC, which might justify a /16, even though it is "more efficient"
to use NAT, which might justify only a /24.    Listing a /16 you
obtained years ago to do the former is not an admission of past or
present fraud; it's merely an admission that you'd be willing to improve
your efficiency /above /the minimum required if someone offered you
sufficient financial motivation.

(I have some comments on the proposed text I'll post later, but I
figured it was more pressing to address the rationale.)
