I never said an institution would present forged names, maybe the message was not clear.  the intention of the message was in a senario where a university registers many students which then justifies allocations which are not used due to either the lack of networking resources, or where institutions have many part time students that make up a big number but actually are never at the institution at the same time.  (And there was a suggested formula for working this out earlier on this thread) but all this creates a big (virtual ) student body.

I think to get a good and sustainable solution we have to explore all possibilities good and bad.  However this is not a suggestion that anyone is planning to do that.
