I agree with Owen.
I support the policy either way.

While criteria as singular may not be an uncommon error, I see no reason to avoid the proper use of the word criterion.
I propose changing to the following:
The basic criterion that must be met is a 50% utilization rate within one year.
Is there some perceived benefit to sticking with a common error?

> Problem Statement:
> End-user policy is intended to provide end-users with a one year supply of IP addresses. Qualification for a one-year supply requires the network operator to utilize at least 25% of the requested addresses within 30 days. This text is unrealistic and should be removed.
> First, it often takes longer than 30 days to stage equipment and start actually using the addresses.
> Second, growth is often not that regimented; the forecast is to use X addresses over the course of a year, not to use 25% of X within 30 days.
> Third, this policy text applies to additional address space requests. It is incompatible with the requirements of other additional address space request justification which indicates that 80% utilization of existing space is sufficient to justify new space. If a block is at 80%, then often (almost always?) the remaining 80% will be used over the next 30 days and longer. Therefore the operator cannot honestly state they will use 25% of the ADDITIONAL space within 30 days of receiving it; they're still trying to use their older block efficiently.
> Fourth, in the face of ARIN exhaustion, some ISPs are starting to not give out /24 (or larger) blocks. So the justification for the 25% rule that previously existed (and in fact, applied for many years) is no longer germane.
