Hi Joe,

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.
