"This policy allows a downstream customer's multi-homing requirement to
serve as justification for a /24 reassignment from their upstream ISP,
regardless of host requirements"

Hello,
  The policy says that a /24 of PA space can be given if the
customer can show that it has an immediate requirement of 25% of the
/24 = /26.

 That is the reason I asked if the multihomer has to be able to fully
utilize a /26=25% of /24 to be able to multihome.

Thanks,
Harsha.
