I like this Policy amendment.
I was quite upset to read Derek Calanchini's e-mail.
I'm also a small ISP.
I'm also distraught to hear people say that something like 87% of of all
space sits with 11 companies...

Perhaps some policy should say you can only ask for (more) space if you
have less than so much...a value which should be reduced according to
what is left, to bias favourably those with less space? Also somehow
throw in "One must already have or also apply for IPv6 at the same

I'm not trying to extend the lifespan of IPv4, rather pick up and help
along other folk like Derek.

In order to meet these needs to the extent possible and to make policy more fair to a broader range of the ARIN constituency, we should reduce the minimum assignment and allocation units to /24 across the board.
