I don't believe the problem will be with Arin.. It is my opinion that the
language opens a door for broad interpretation by folks outside Arin.  But,
I also see the need to start an IP conservation effort. Since Arin is
willing to gather data in an effort to manage the effort, I applaud them and
give them a thumbs up.

In a perfect world, we would have a resolution process whereby mom&pop
hosting company could appeal the decision of a tier 1 to not allow IP space
allotment because of this effort.
