But ARIN was previously able to subdivide space in a way that allows for 
growth without increasing table size, and at a fairly known rate, and 
with a finite limit imposed by the free pool size.

If the goal is to prevent the BGP table size from growing too quickly, 
or causing it to grow in a predictable way, then we should come up with 
policies that reduce disaggregation at the source, no matter who the 
recipients are.

If breaking up every block into /24-sized pieces is acceptable if the 
recipients are all different, then the table size is no different than 
if the recipients are all the same... and so there's no real win on 
table size, instead we simply make things overly complicated for the 
buyer for no benefit.
