Given that doing so would encourage a lot more deaggregation of existing /24s, I find it unlikely that ISPs will permit longer than /24 in any appreciable number to matter.

As one of the authors of 2008-5, yes, you are (mostly) correct.

I didn’t expect ISPs to relax their filters in general, but I did expect ISPs might relax their filters for this particular designated block. I don’t see any reason that wouldn’t be possible even now as that would not encourage (or even allow) deaggregation of existing /24s.

We are talking about a relatively small block being preserved to provide minimal resources for (primarily) post-runout new entrants (or at least that was my intent at the time of writing).

I see no advantage to 2014-22. I think when this block comes into play, since it is a particular designated block, ISPs will react relatively quickly to allow longer prefixes within this space when it becomes necessary.

Since it is only a single /10, even at /28, we’re talking about a maximum of 16,384 additional prefixes.
