I will strongly suggest not to go down there as it raises several other
issues which cannot really be addressed here. A registry can not guaranty
reservation at 100% for several reasons. Further more, reservation has
an impact on global policy as it has to be taken in account for requesting
subsequent allocation from IANA. I think the role of our registration
service is to make sure that provision is made for reasonable growth and
for reasonable period. Trust the registry on that.
