Thanks for your comments on this proposal.
We have 5-10 assignment cases every year in the past 5 years within CN, and currently there are about 1620 assignments in total in the AP region, averagely about 100 assignment cases each year in the AP region.
With IDN ccTLD and ongoing discussion of more open gTLD policy, we can expect dozens of gTLD will be created in the next few years. I am not trying to argue the needs for new gTLD/ccTLD, IXPs or multi-homed will be increasing, but it's certain that the needs will not diminish.

I think it could be possible that there will be needs for these assignments if there is a new gTLD/ccTLD set up as critical infrastructure, and we could also have new IXPs or multi-homed networks. We constantly make 3-4 assignments/year for these use within JP.
Then again, if the numbers are not very big, may be it can accomodated within the /16 reserved for unexpected future use.
Terrence, do you have an idea on how many of these assignments we should expect?

I'm not seeing that as an issue.. Are you worried that those unscrupulous users of IP address space would take a /22 from the last /8 policy and the transfer it in chunks of /24 to people? Please clarify why the /24 transfer size in the final /8 is a problem?
I support /24 transfer size very much, Sir. Since you expressed strong objection to /24 allocation size and don't want this 'be replicated' in the final /8, so I was just wondering if you will propose to change /24 the minimum transfer size.
Transfers are a different beast to the final /8 allocation. Don't you see that?
What I am suggesting is that the industry will get far better use of those /22 allocations in the last /8 as for use in v6 transition without being chopped up and micromanaged into /24 slices.
It makes no sense to keep the last /8 immune from /24 delegations, while the dozens of /8 allocated before the last /8 allowing /24 assignments.
What I now think is keeping this thread going makes little sense. There appears to be no support for this proposal.
