grantee's ``service area'' in the context of the FTZ Board's standard 
2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was submitted

    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone to include the existing site as a ``magnet'' site. The ASF allows 
for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ``sunset'' time
