Question: How to determine whether "these times have passed"?

Possible answer: Compare the distribution of RIPE NCC contributors
according to their self-declared size with the distribution of 
IP address space allocated to them; in other words, compare theory
with reality.  If there's a mismatch, revise the theory.
