Hi,

I think that there is less value in a barrier to entry if the
minimum initial allocation size is smaller. I doubt the overhead
of checking that each requester meets the 25% barrier would be 
equal to the value of the work.

I can see the value in a policy for root DNS servers. However, all
three root servers operating in our region have address space.

I don't have those stats to hand. However, I can give you details of
the numbers of /20s allocated per month for the same period:

    200301          7
    200302         20
    200303         14
    200304         16
    200305         35
    200306         24
    200307          7

I hope that's useful.
