What about a park on the other side of the city, state, or country?

Speaking neither for or against the policy change; mobility is
absolutely a different animal when it comes to address allocation
within your network - I.e. counting homes under a given cell site is
not nearly (if at all) relevant as counting homes served by a fixed
service PoP (CO/Headend/AP/etc.).  Mobile addresses get used where
people are, fixed residential addresses get used where homes are. This
does not mean that the policy is perfect, it just means that the issue
is not quite as black and white as you paint it - there *are*
meaningful differences that *do* need to be considered.
