Hi all, 

I appreciate many people gave me advices,
Some of persons asked me about my questions, I'm sorry for that I couldn't reply to everyone.
Because of your help, I could get many opinions and standards regarding IP allocation policy.
by the way, in APNIC's IP allocation sizes policy, there is a comments like below.
"Below are the minimum sizes for allocations and assignments, This information is provided at the request of the ISP community
to assist in filtering policy decisions "
Currently, is there any provider filtering routes under LIR's minimum allocation size such as /22 ? 

Best regards,
 Chi-Young Joung
