I have a better idea:

For IPv4, realize that really really soon, this isn't going to matter.

For IPv6, realize that it almost never matters.

I have no problem with someone getting a nice big IPv6 block from one 
convenient local RIR, and then splitting it up across their 
multinational organization however they see fit. If they plan well, they 
*never* come back to *any* RIR for address space.

Meanwhile, why are we still discussing IPv4 policy at all?
