I do not agree with this part. We have been on the waiting list for one 
year requesting a /20 or, if impossible, a /21. We have setup our 
business plans for this prefix length while using our current /21 very 
carefully. We are currently using this prefix at 90% while deploying 
IPv6 to our customers. I do not think is fair for us, good standing ARIN 
members, to pay the price of a malicious enterprise.
