"Conservation" is the principle.

"Justified need"  as a criteria is an implementation detail, that
should be changed as necessary.

Once again...   a justification that _principles_  ought to be in a
different document, and not so mutable as "policy".

Principles should not change every year,   maybe every 25 years, there
could be a small tweak;     they should be the fundamental  things
the  internet community agrees on that number resource policy should
be based.

They certainly ought not reflect specific things about today's  policy
implementation details;  like  "justified need"  as the specific
detail,  about  the mechanism / how RIRs  currently go about
implementing conservation.
