Staff can clarify if I get this wrong.. but I believe that deletion of would not have the effect of removing all justification
requirements for additional assignment for Small Mulithomers -
instead, they would have to qualify for additional assignment under Utilization Requirements for Additional Assignment
In order to justify an additional assignment, end-users must have
efficiently utilized at least 80% of all previous assignments, and
must provide ARIN with utilization details. The prefix size for an
additional assignment is determined by applying the policies found in
Section 4.3 of the NRPM.
