I believe there should be both a per-allocation utilization minimum
and an aggregate utilization criterion.
I also suggest a step-up in the utilization requirement: the minimum
utilization criterion to say you are using the space efficiently
should be upped to 95% usage demonstrated, not 80%. It has been shown
that such efficient utilization is possible and provides better
conservation of IP address space.
Conceivably the bar could be set at: Minimum 50% utilization of each
previous allocation, and 95% utilization in the aggregate, both
criteria to be met for eligibility to receive additional address
space: then the problem of "one small allocation" inefficiently
used is mitigated.
While just an aggregate utilization criterion interesting. I don't
believe a /16 resource holder should be able to obtain more address
space, if they have a separate /21 or /20 allocation completely (or
mostly) unused; it should either be used or returned, before another
Justified needs means you efficiently utilize _all_ allocations, not
just the last one you got, not just the allocations you feel like
