The point in having a minimum of /27 is to cater for people who need address space only to inter operate networks (v4<==>v6). These people don't need large blocks of v4 to do this and i think it unwise to just give it away......no one is being forced to take this minimum...if they can justify larger blocks.....they can be given

Yes, this is correct.... by removing the limit of 4 blocks per member in the exhaustion phase, we do away with the possibility of having address space locked up and unusable...which is the problem you highlighted in your recommendation......
