In addition, a few show commands on a router displaying arp (with first 6 filtered) or ppp sessions (with username filtered) or dhcp pool printouts showing utilization would make much more sense and provide better "proof" of utilization then handing out private resident names of the <10% static /32 utilization pool.

/32s are not required. Get over it.

/29 and larger.
