We have the SL policy. AFAIK, no other region has placed such a restriction
on its resources.

Sometimes folk have good reasons to use addresses in Region B and C, even
though they were obtained in region A.  If a compnay has a global network
for example, is it fair to make them become 5 different LIRs, one in each
region?  It also helps in aggregation to have fewer blocks allocated to
large networks.

What drc has pointed out is that it is non-trivial to determine where
resources are used.

indicates how we get there."  Jon Postel
