My issue with the needs requirement post-runout is that the 3-month
rules are still in effect for new and recent entrants... this means that
no matter how hard it is to locate a block that's for sale and
successfully bid for one, you're only able to get 3 months worth of
space unless you've had space for at least a year.
The original argument that it just requires filing some paperwork every
3 months to continue justifying additional space no longer works when it
isn't just filing some paperwork to get space from a free pool any more.
I have several policy proposals pending that attempt to fix this.
