I agree with you, but the questions is do we force everyone to use that 
model?  If you look at the costs of running even an ISP small enough to 
run with a /22 of IPv4 $2000 a year really isn't that much.  But, the 
new fee schedule with both x-small and xx-small provides pretty good 
equity in the fee structure on the lower end, that is really difficult 
to make work with a one size fits all policy.
