Would that be rounded up to a /15 (131072 addresses, equivalent
to using a multiplier of about 6.55:1 instead of 5:1), or rounded
down to a /16 (65536 addresses, equivalent to using a multiplier
of about 3.27:1), or a /16 plus a /17 (98304 addresses, equivalent
to a multiplier of 4.91:1), or something else agreed between the
applicant and AFRINIC?
My reading of the proposal is that the applicant could choose any
multiplier between 0 and 10, with multipliers less than or equal
to 5 being almost automatically accepted by AFRINIC, but with
larger multipliers requiring more justification.
