Couple of questions..... could the solution for staff effort be solved more
directly by modifying the protocol that establishes team testing for each
and every request through exhaustion? I wonder about the need for these
Is /16 small? Did you consider a different boundary....say, /20?
How much of a record do we have for transfer requests yet? Until
exhaustion we don't know what the run rate will be or the average size
block request. Though I believe the that those metrics should mimic
pre-exhaustion as I see nothing magic affecting network build out and
business demands in the pre-post time frames.
So, I neither support, nor oppose this proposal but hope to inform the
discussion through my questions.
