It is a matter of having the same organization that allocated IP addresses doing allocation of IP addresses, despite the number of "possible customers", instead of having a *new* organization doing so. I really think it may become a political issue and breach for the RIRs system and I don't feel very comfortable with that. The allocation of the ULA-central addresses can be managed in a very automated way, so not a big issue if really becomes a "big" number of them (which I'm convinced will be the case, because only some big entities may want to avoid using ULA local, but enough to avoid wasting global unicast instead).
