Yes, it would. It would seem ARIN should allocate small blocks on
a trade-in only policy. You can get a /24, but when you go to a /23 you
_will_ renumber, and soforth up to a /19 or so, at which time when you need
more you get an additional prefix.
That way you limit it to 1 route per ASN for small players, and
everyone can multihome.
