There are quite a number of members who are yet to deploy any subnet of the
resource allocated to them. There are reasons why this can happen; for
example, the upstream provider of a member (which I am contact) attach a
recurring fee to block advertisement. This to me was quite  surprising and
we are still trying to avoid that cost either through convincing the
current provider or moving on to another!
Nevertheless, I don't think there is any member in that category that will
successfully get additional allocation.
On a lighter note, this could raise a question on usage and whether a
policy is required to "ensure" usage ;)
