Hi Gary,

Criteria a, b or f all justify a /48 according to NRPM which
is not modified by this policy.

It's not obvious to me why c or d would necessarily qualify for more than a /48.

E justifies a /40, as you said.

I see what you're saying, you're only adding section E. Man, that's a
really confusing way to write a policy change. The reader has to
really dig to see what you're changing.
