I don't believe individuals (as an individual person) are allowed to 
request resources any longer.  A business could be a sole 
proprietorship, and in every day terms there isn't that much difference, 
but legally there is I believe.

But, your historical individual assignment isn't intended to be in 
violation of this policy.  The policy is intended to apply to requesting 
(new or additional) resources.  Just as it is intended to apply to how 
you justify resources, not how you use them in your network once 
allocated or assigned.

See the 3rd paragraph of the Advisory Council comments in the email of 
the policy or the 4th paragraph on the web page.  In the email the white 
space between the 1st and 2nd paragraphs got removed making them look 
like one big paragraph, its right on the web page.
