David,

The ISPs participating in ARIN get to disusss the impact of various allocation 
thresholds on their routing during the policy development process.

If you have a magic vendor machine issuing prefixes to all comers regardless
of need, then the routing scalability problem becomes much, much poignant, 
and the ability of the community to course correct is zero.
