I think that's not possible if a part of the community desires less
restrictions on IP address distribution and another part desires more
restrictions on IP address distribution.

These are really opposite directions desired. In the absence of
consensus the status quo is the middle ground.

The fact is that a part of the community wishes IP address distribution
to _NOT_ become more restrictive.
This is the conflict that needs to be addressed, because all further
arguments come from that.
