You can never spend enough

All the other issues aside, wouldn’t they have to fully balanced their set of availability?I’m gonna take a stab at what Sandisw is saying.
The trust has a million points spread across the resorts. 100,000 of those points are at AKV. At the 11 months window, for deeded owners and 100,000 AKV points, a maximum of 1000 owners could try to book a 100 pt Concierge trip. (All numbers for simplicity sake).
So. However the pool of points is constructed, it cannot let 10,000 owners attempt to book that concierge room (the maximum amounts 1M/100 pt trip.)
If more than 1,000 trust owners are all up in the AKV booking window at 8am, 11months out, DVC has changed the POS for the trust members.
So the trust would have to figure out how to both limit the number of its members at AKV at 11 months AND allow them a mechanism to equally (but not at an advantage) compete for the always walked room.
Those two goals will work against each other.
Let’s take a simple resort like BC with 1 room view. 3 room sizes and 7 seasons, around 3mil points total. Say the math works out that all the studios bookable on Jan 17th equal 2000pts. If DVCTrust collectively owns 5% of BCV, that day they should only be able to book 100pts of availability. Bank/borrow? How they’d handle that?
So going back to coveted CL AKV rooms, If the trust owns 5% of AKV then they really shouldn’t be able to exceed more than 5% access to any category on any given day.
