Bill - 
 If you believe that either of the two are sufficient, please write
 them up.  We have not been asking employee count so it is unclear
 what heuristic is to be used for "assumed utilization based on # of 
 service provider employees" and some guidance will be needed there.  
 Same with respect to acceptable ratios of dialup accounts and/or 
 email boxes to IP address utilization.

 It is not David's job to write it up; he's not the one seeking 
 an alternative.  You are seeking to establish some alternatives 
 and therefore you carry the burden of documenting your suggestions
 so that folks in the community can read them and consider if they
 are fair and technically sound.
