Such speculations would not have been a very prudent to rely upon.  Anyway:
there is likely
to not ever be a full /7,  so a /7 cannot be allocated, for example.  Some
"natural" limit exists,
whether exactly known or not,  and there's no guarantee of anyone on the
list ever
eventually getting filled.

Perhaps it should simply be that when ordering the wait list ---  All
requests whether new or
still pending each XX day period,  say over 90 days will be considered
on one date,  and in addition to being ordered by request date,  the
requests are sorted
into buckets based on the number of total IP addresses requested, e.g.:

All requests that can be satisfied at their minimum size by a /24, /23,
/22, /21, or less (for example)
in the entire waiting  list, and those larger being processed today shall
each be sorted into a
corresponding "bucket"   with other requests that can be satisfied at that

All requests from every bucket of smaller sized requests shall be satisfied
in at least their
minimum size  before considering requests in any buckets of larger size.

In this manner a "larger request" like a /20 could in theory be made,  but
even if that request was pending for  2 years:   all the  new  requests
that can be
satisfied by /24 or less,  then /23 or less,  then /22 or less, then /21 or
less  should
be considered and filled first.

So to have any chance of filling a massive allocation,  then that should
mean the
waiting list has become essentially empty.....
