I took Marty as referring to RFC2050 not the year 2050. RFC2050 made
conservation a primary consideration for IPv4 allocation policies, even at
the cost of operational complexity. With IPv6 we shouldn’t be profligate,
but conservation doesn’t need to the primary consideration either,
operational simplicity can come first, including a multi-year supply on
initial allocation.
