I actually like and could support this.
(Though I don’t think it’s a panacea for the ISP vs. end-user debate in its entirety, from a policy perspective, I’m fine with the policy as expressed.)
The one caveat is that I wouldn’t want to see this implemented in such a way that it would potentially interfere with what is currently known as proposal 191 if that achieves consensus (which I think is likely).

> An ISP can obtain an initial allocation of a /24 or larger by demonstrating a need to use at least 25% of the space within 90 days, and at least 50% of the space within one year.
> An ISP can obtain an additional allocations by demonstrating 80% or better utilization of existing address space. The additional allocation block size determination uses the criterion in 4.2.0

> Throw in a section on SWIP, keep 4.5 MDN as-is, and presto, you're done with section 4, and you've fixed NRPM 8.3 and you've harmonized the very broken ISP v End-user mechanic.
