I am opposed to the proposal that removes the requirement to
renumber, without also changing the minimum allocation size for small

The "freezing" of ARIN additional assignments is not an unintended
effect, it is the express intent of the policy that changed the
minimum allocation from /22 to /24; those organizations who obtained a
/24 under this policy were aware, or should have been aware of the
restriction, and had the option of obtaining address space from an
upstream provider, if renumbering out of a /24 within a 1 year
period would be an undue burden for that provider.
The requirement to renumber should not be removed from existing /24s
allocated under this policy; it is a provision that is relevant to
serious concerns about routing table prefix count growth.
