I am opposed.

This space is to allow IPv6 networks access to IPv4 resources so that the 
users on these networks can connect to IPv4 resources.

Current practice for CGnat generally use a block of 4.10 IPv4 resources to 
provide such interconnect for many /64 networks.  Giving them a /21 to be 
able to have a CGnat at each site does not seem a good use of this block. 
This is more than what was proposed for the regular waiting list, limited 
to a /22. The goal of the block is for IPv4 connectivity until a future time 
when IPv4 is no longer the primary transport on the internet.  It was 
intended to be a shared block, and not one where each user could have 
their own IPv4 address.

> Currently, applicants for IPv4 resources under section 4.10 of the NRPM who do so under a single OrgID of the NRPM may only obtain one /24 every six months for the OrgID, even in the case where multiple discrete networks (MDNs) as defined in section 4.5 of the NRPM are grouped under that OrgID. On the other hand, where MDNs are held under different OrgIDs associated the same entity, the six-month constraint would apply to each discrete network separately. This results in unfair allocations of resources based solely on how entities choose to associate MDNs with their OrgIDs. This policy rectifies that problem by placing MDNs on an equal footing for the purpose of section 4.10 allocations regardless of how they are grouped by OrgID by the same ultimate entity.
