I agree with Bill. It might be appropriate to drop needs testing for
small allocations simply because it is not worth the effort, but I don't
see a /16 as being small. Something in the range of /24 to /20 would
Another idea to ponder would be instead of dropping the need requirement,
we adopt a presumption of good faith for small allocations. ARIN would
simply take the word of the requester or recipient for small allocations
or transfers, but if it was later discovered the recipient was acting in
bad faith, the allocation could be revoked.
