I agree there is no downside keeping it as it is.  We ought to be making it easier not harder wherever we can.  I'm against changing it as well.

Yes, renumbering is hard.  Renumbering is even harder for rural entities that don't have tons of high end network engineers around.  It's hard enough for rural service providers to pool enough funds to buy a switch and stand up an IX, discouraging them from building additional interconnectivity by making it difficult to get IP addresses is disappointing.

On the other hand, there is absolutely no downside to keeping the requirement the way it is.  Changing it does nothing for conservation of
IPv4 addresses at all, as any dishonest players won't have a harder time at all faking 3 entities as compared to 2.
