There are different ways to look at this proposal.  It is not usual 
practice to assign IP addresses based on population count.  That 
doesn't mean that the region should not do it as each region may have 
its own considerations.

What has not discussed in this thread is whether there will be abuse, 
how the proposal will be abused and how to mitigate that.
