FYI: This one is existing policy. It's intention is to allow all
serving sites (regions, etc.) to grow uniformly.

>> * Has allocated more than 90% of their serving site blocks to serving sites, and has sufficient actual utilization at their serving sites to continue to justify the block size being utilized for all serving sites as specified in section 6.5.2.

This is the new criteria being added. I am unclear what "sufficient
actual utilization" means in this context though.
