In the part you didn't quote, I pointed out operators have choice.
Operators may foolishly choose to squat, and there may be a circle 
of operators who share what space they squat, infecting others with 
that bad idea. Or it may be job hoppers who carry the contagin to
new environments.  But it is in no way "industry standard" and to
perpetuate that phrasing is in itself supporting it, even without
doing it yourself.

PPML isn't the the place for it, but naming and shaming elsewhere
(nanog?) could be an interesting exercise.
