Let me clarify my position here. I am not opposed to the policy to 
be changed, quite the opposite. There is definitly a problem to be
addressed here that makes the current policies not entirely appropriate.

However, this proposal as written is : 
1. Way too permissive, as it seems to remove utilization justification
2. Contains vague undefined terms such as "reasonably required" (in the 
staff comments) 
3. May not entirely solve the issue, as the 80% threshold mentioned will 
not reach the intended goal for very small subnets
