Opposed, as I do not see the need to justify 200 addresses as enough
of a burden to outweigh the benefits of not giving out /24s like candy
to those who cannot when coupled with the likely to be implemented
minimum /24 size allocation to an ORG.

The laws of physics cause this to be needed, due to current technology
used to preform the basic functions of the internet. This would not be
good stewardship of the resource as this is a remarkably low barrier
to entry considering the ramifications.
