I support this policy. For whatever reason, an entity may choose to be 
utilizing its address space anywhere in the world. Where the addresses 
are being used at this instant should not have any bearing on whether or 
not they are "utilized". Clearly if I have a /24 filled to 95% capacity 
with running VMs, and they're running on physical hardware in Virginia, 
that /24 is utilized. If I happen to choose later today to move them to 
a physical host in Luxembourg, the addresses didn't stop being 
utilized... they're just temporarily being used somewhere else in the 
world, and that's perfectly reasonable.

Further, keeping restrictions like this will simply cause entities to 
work around the policy either by using subsidiaries or by not even 
bothering to record transfers.
