[arin-ppml] Policy discussion - Method of calculating utilization

Friends, Colleagues,

A couple of years ago I brought up an issue I had run into where the
utilization requirement for new requests is being calculated on a per
allocation basis rather than in aggregate. For example, if an
organization has 4 x /22 and 3 of them are utilized 100% and the
fourth utilized at 75%, that request would be denied. This is a bit
out of balance as an organization with a single /20 utilized at 80%
would have less efficient utilization but would be eligible to request
additional space.

The last time this was discussed it sounded as if the community would
support a policy proposal to change this calculation to be considered
in aggregate vs. per assignment. Does this remain the case?
