Tony, I think we are past that. The fact that all RIR's are  
considering some sort of policy on the distribution of the remaining  
free pool implies that there's indeed _need for such a policy. The  
most urgent question is: N=?

I think your policy is useful and will be handy after the exhaustion  
of v4. IMHO, this is the right time to start thinking of such a  
policy. All in all, we still need a policy to handle the remaining v4  
free pool.
