Add new subsection in section 6.5 of the NRPM:

Organizations that meet the direct end site assignment criteria are eligible to receive a direct assignment. The minimum size of the assignment is /48. Organizations requesting a larger assignment must provide documentation justifying the need for additional subnets.

These assignments shall be made from a distinctly identified prefix and shall be made with a reservation for growth of at least a /44.
