We are not throwing out the needs test. We are seeking reasonable compromise
in limiting the application of that needs test by imposing size and time
restrictions which hopefully will reduce compliance-avoidance behavior while
at the same time improving access to space for small companies. Because the
transfer is policy is written to reference the allocation policies which
apply to free pool addresses, any streamlining of the needs evaluation such
as you suggest will require substantial change to the NRPM, whereas the
proposed change includes the insertion of one clause into 8.3 and 8.4.
