refuse additional address space until those conform to a new policy
(which may require significant time and expense).

IPv4 address space, particularly in many cases companies with historic
large allocations, and should therefore be compliant with efforts to
reclaim any large unused address space. But the question of what is more
reasonable, to reclaim "unused" address space or force improved efficency
of address space currently providing valuable service, seems to be a
