The Big Squeeze

Except the current allocation practices seem at odds with the
goal of minimizing route table growth. Why is it better to
allocate several non-agregatable blocks that are 'just' the
right size rather than one aggregatable block the next size

Actually, the current allocation practices do exactly that since
the InterNIC, in almost all cases, allocates blocks of addresses
to ISPs from larger reserved blocks.
