I would be interested in seeing a small allocation carved out for the
purpose of running a test, to see what would happen in a free market
without needs basis. Those who have justified need could continue
using existing policies to obtain space, and those without (eg. need
space in a pinch, cant/dont feel like writing up justification) could
purchase from the special allocation at the going market rate.
