What problem do you think that would solve?
In the current case being discussed, it isn't the block size minimums he
is having a problem with, it is the amount he can get SWIPd vs. the
inability to qualify under immediate need.
IMHO, the correct fix is to modify the pre-existing space requirements
so as to allow documented need to substitute for SWIP'd space.
