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.

How about support for removing the needs test for small transfers a la 
It seems to benefit those whose needs are small, but who are having 
difficulties with justification due to niggling IPv4 policy issues like 
minimum sizes and utilization requirements.
Others have noted we are rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic with 
these IPv4 policy issues.
Maybe it is time to metaphorically sweep those chairs into the sea so we can 
move on.
