I oppose the proposed policy as currently drafted.
The notion of a /16 being "small" is ludicrous.
By the time you need a /16, you have enough
staff to handle tracking your SWIP/rwhois data
for your customers, and justifying needs is just
part and parcel of running your business.

I would support a modified version of the policy
that stipulated a single needs-free transfer of a /22
per year per org-ID as a means to help support truly
small entities getting going.
I would further encourage a cap; such needs-free
transfers would only apply to org-IDs so long as
they remain in the "small" category based on
overall cumulative holdings.  Once an org-ID
exceeded the total holdings allowed in the "small"
category, it's time to trade in the diapers for the
big-boy pants, and track your utilization and
show demonstrated need over time.
