I have almost exactly the opposite opinion. No shortage means no cause to
game the system. No gaming of the system means the transfer is requested
for reasonable, pragmatic causes. Like avoiding renumbering pain. Why
should this be prevented?

Where there is a plausible reason to believe someone is gaming the system
or just generally being careless and wasteful, that's where I want to see
limits and strict evaluation.
