This seems to me like a reasonable operational practice for ARIN to use
to help prevent a run on the remaining free pool from organizations with
large quantities of existing space.

Are you trying to change this before free pool runout, or are you concerned
with making needs justification a bit easier for transfers once the free
pool is exhausted? I would support the latter, but not the former.
