Limited Space on prorate slip

In prorate slip, SIS has given a provision of maximum 10 lines of 400 characters each. Which means in addition to header information we can accommodate maximum 3 sectors of routing on a prorate slip. This limited space may give incomplete info on prorate slip. Most of the times, ATBP contains more than 3 sectors. Round the world fare shows more than 10 sectors. In case of invol rerouting two prorations are shown in one prorate slip. In all these cases, information on prorate slip will be incomplete. Pls advise how to handle these situations.

There are ten records, and each record has 5 "lines" of 80 characters each (= 400 characters per record). 80 characters is a common screen width for terminals, and each "line" of a prorate slip should be able to fit into 80 characters.
 
So 10 records means 10*5=50 lines. Before adding this, we did an analysis with the working groups and they had no problems with this length. But, as always, it's possible we missed something. Please advise if so, preferably with a specific example.
