You have to consider that most likely there will be an increase in
de-aggregation due to:

- The RIRs allocating smaller and smaller address space to every member,
even smaller than a /24;

- The RIRs allocating from smaller, fragmented allocations received from
IANA.  This means that it would also be possible - in theory - for
example, to receive an allocation for a /22, sparse in two,
non-contiguous, /23s (or a similar situation).

- The holders of large parts of address space monetizing via transfers,
thus fragmenting even more.
