Do not support.

I believe all allocations should be assigned at the /32 level and be
automatically coupled with ASN assignment.

The RIPE policy is too narrow, and unless someone beats me too it (please
do ), I will introduce a similar but more general idea to ARIN that applies
to v4 and v6.

Without a conservation and audit mandate, I believe the arin community
would benefit from smoother and more predictable interactions and business
