No, I am putting thought into it, but no magic bullets yet.. just think 
this isn't the one..

Totally understood of course.. I believe this will make it easier to 
abuse the system.  IMHO

Maybe if you can show how the barriers are reduced for smaller entities 
and new entrants, vs how they will be affected if the larger entities 
are enabled to get the remaining space faster?

Hopefully the question will be answered, and the quicker we move on, 
maybe the quicker that will be answered.

If you've got an alternative solution, then by all means, let's hear it. Otherwise, I think moving this one forward does more good than harm.

Okay, please show how this is the case?
