I agree with Owen and would like to express opposition to this proposal. I believe the term "sub-assignment" has the indication of making official sub distribution of addresses by and LIR/ISP to their client organizations. The concerns addressed in this proposal seem to be covered already within the current texts in the quoted section of current policy. Or, at least not explicitly supports any of the situation mentioned in the proposal.
