Assuming "everybody is always-on at home" (with "few" subnets there), this will be the LARGE majority of subscribers - and being able to increase that number by 256 sounds like "significant gain" to me. > IMHO, changing the HD-Ratio is a better idea, with no downside I can > currently see (can anyone?). It would be quite useful to see the efficiency of large-block-holders' network plans, to base judgment on the target HD ratio on the reasonably achievable efficiency in real-world network plans. Making the HD ratio overly tight ("0.99") would mean "destroying potential internal aggregation", and that's a bad thing to do.
