I'm of deeply mixed opinion. I definitely understand the routing table slots issue. But I suspect it has less meaning now than it did before, due to everyone having to get much bigger tables in the last few years anyway. And there simply won't be *that* many /24s that acquire another /24.  Before I consider that a threat, I'd like to see someone do the math real quick on how many /24s are there, and if every one of them got another /24 (if that is possible in the current free pool) what the table growth would be.

I absolutely don't feel that "pain of renumbering" is now, nor should ever dictate policy.  I don't think we should renumber without reason, but hell we all re-arrange when we move to a bigger house ;-)
