Who are we to tell someone their network is not used for operational
purposes? Unless it is, of course, an illegitimate claim? On one hand, we
want to be flexible. We do want people who are have a legitimate need to
get whatever resources they can justify per policy. On the other hand, we
don't want anyone to get resources they aren't entitled to. That would be
wasteful and deprive legitimate others whether they are on the waiting list
or in a tight transfer market and competing for space. However, it seems
like staff are in a better decision to decipher the requests and choose a
direction. Silence in the NRPM on this topic is the richer and more
equitable solution.

For those reasons, I don't support the draft.
