That may be the case; it depends on additional factors such how well 
organized the ISP is with respect to their address block recordkeeping,
cost of obtaining address space on the transfer market, etc.

The proposal would make it possible for some ISPs (large and small) to 
request additional space who may not otherwise be able due to difficulty
in reaching full utilization of past address blocks.

For larger ISP's, there is potentially diminishing returns given that
there is significant documentation necessary regarding the utilization
of all their previous allocations (However, this is slightly offset
as their utilization rate is higher, therefore providing a larger 
relatively-sized block allocation based on their 3 month usage..)

Hope this helps,

President and CEO
