As written, this is not an editorial change. It’s a nit, but as written this actually changes the policy from ≤/20 to </20.

Propose that we modify the new text slightly:

“Only organizations which hold IPv4 space less than or equal to an aggregate  /20 are eligible to apply.”

This would provide the same clarity, but remain consistent with the existing policy.

> A recent Policy Experience report pointed to ambiguity among waitlist applicants as to whether the /20 limit on existing space restriction applies to organizations holding a single /20 block, or an aggregate /20’s worth of IPv4 space. An editorial change to NRPM section 4.1.8 aims to remove this ambiguity, clarifying that an organization must hold a /20 or less in aggregate.
