I'm not sure we would have enshrined this in policy.

there are lots of folk who may want a PI block that isn't on a /24 boundary.

How else would you have organised them so that categories don't
overlap each other?  So for the below example, you can't have BOTH
categories include "512" as the boundary can you?

Micro End User	256 - 512	$2,500	$200
Mini End User	      513 - 1023	$2,700	$300
