On behalf of myself, I support this proposal.

On behalf of my company, which finds itself in the position
of 8 large allocations above 93% and 1 small allocation below the 80% mark,
I support this proposal.

Friends, Colleagues,

A couple of years ago I brought up an issue I had run into where the utilization requirement for new requests is being calculated on a per allocation basis rather than in aggregate. For example, if an organization has 4 x /22 and 3 of them are utilized 100% and the fourth utilized at 75%, that request would be denied. This is a bit out of balance as an organization with a single /20 utilized at 80% would have less efficient utilization but would be eligible to request additional space.

The last time this was discussed it sounded as if the community would support a policy proposal to change this calculation to be considered in aggregate vs. per assignment. Does this remain the case?
