Sorry, lack of clarity because of failing neurons.  
What I meant to say was "1024 CIDRable allocations".  
Or simply "allocations". 

The point is that we will guarantee that our allocation policy will
create no more than 1024 allocations per /8 and therefore not
necessitate by itself more routes than that.  Currently our allocation
sizes are /19 - /16.  If you think about it a little you will see that
it is easy to achieve.

And just in case: Yes the minimum allocation is /19 irrespective 
of the number of hosts covered. Note: allocation != assignment.

Daniel
