Actually, this is timely, and you probably started at the right place, 
what would be needed though is for someone to write up a draft 
resolution to this affect, to change current policies.

I was just talking to several parties regarding the same issue, and 
while there might have been justification in the past, when routing 
issues were a greater concern than running out of IPv4 space, but given 
the current situation, maybe it is time to rethink this policy.

In the mean time, you are faced in getting two upstream providers to 
route to your prospective /22.  I know, it doesn't make too much sense 
that the small guy should bear the burden of extra costs etc.. for being 
honest about his projected requirements..

Any other support out there for policy changes in this area?
