Proposal summary - ----------------
This is a proposal to add an alternative criteria to the requirement for organizations receiving their initial allocation from APNIC to renumber out of their previously deployed space when they are allocated addresses under the final /8 policy.

Summary of discussion to date - -----------------------------
- There was a suggestion to set the level at 90% occupied rather than 80% to reduce wasted space, although another point of view was that 20% was not a great amount of wasted space. An author confirmed that the 80% figure was chosen just to reflect existing policy.
- There were concerns about disaggregation raised as a consequence of this policy. Others doubted this would be significant.
- There was discussion about how difficult it would be for operators to renumber.
- There was disagreement over whether the "new alternative criteria" is more relaxed or more strict than pre-final /8 policy. One point of view was that the final /22 should be used for Ipv6 deployment and that there should very few restrictions on it.
- There was discussion about encouraging IPv6 adoption such as ensuring every final /8 went to an organization with an IPv6 address block, or requiring a deployment plan.
