They are in "careful mode" due to their community's choice.

While it might have been useful for all the regions to run out at roughly
the same time, i doubt that more than one region would have reached
consensus on such a scheme. It certainly would not have been palatable to
many in my region.

However, if you look at "who got what" just before the last 5 were
allocated, apnic did get 2 /8s in that period.
