    141141`geni_allocated` represents resources that have been allocated to a slice without provisioning the resources. This represents a cheap and reversible resource allocation. When a sliver is created and moved into state 2 (`geni_allocated`), the aggregate produces a manifest RSpec identifying which resources are included in the sliver. These resources are exclusively available to the containing sliver, but are not ready for use. In particular, allocating a sliver should be a cheap and quick operation, which the aggregate can readily undo without impacting the state of slivers which are fully provisioned. For some aggregates, transitioning to this state may be a no-op.
