Mike - 
  If an extremely large and fast growing ISP were to qualify for
  an IPv4 /9 allocation today, then NRPM 4.1.8 (Unmet Need) would
  be in effective.  Regardless of their choice (smaller block or
  waiting list), there would still be other IPv4 requestors who 
  should be entitled to receive resources from the remaining free
  pool so long as they submit a complete and valid request before 
  other requestors.

  The team review provides for serialization of requests which makes
  this possible, and hence it should continue even if one requestor
  has unmet need.  Even after completion depletion, parties will want
  to know that they are being approved and placed on the list in the
  appropriate order.
