This brings me to another of the reasons for having a range of possible
allocation sizes. If an LIR knows that they will need 4x /23 then I
would much prefer that we allocate them 1 x /21 and not 4 fragments of
address space.

The routing table size has been clearly identified is a looming problem
for the global internet. Let is not fragment the IP space any more than
we have to.
