Hi Owen,

I haven't been able to come up with a plausible scenario where prior
to IPv4's effective end of use, an ISP can't come up with a /28 for a
customer with the right number of zeros in their bill. Not a competent
ISP that intends to stay in business anyway. If you have a scenario in
mind then by all means walk us through it and mind the details.

This looks like a solution in search of a problem to me.
