While the idea is great, isn't ARIN supposed to already be implementing 
this in one way?

i.e: You get one allocation, and until you can show 80% usage -- 
applying again generally does not get you anywhere.

Going by this, shouldn't all previous allocs ("aggregated / per 
organization allocations") actually be used up? Or am I missing something?
