David and PPML,

I oppose the policy as written.

I think 8.5 adequately sets forth criteria for block size. 8.5.5 is 
especially "generous" (at least, compared to similar needs tests of the 
last 20 years of ARIN's existence), and is good "one size fits all" policy 

I also think staff are properly applying policy with their current 
procedures for dealing with any requests justified under 4.2.2 but 
fulfilled under section 8.

I would be in favor of the AC abandoning 2017-9.
