Prob mod lik pofq etc. but as I look forward and dd's get older could prob need more pts for trip every yr but the may just bank etc. I'm 36 and they r 4 and 2. So I know if wife has her way we will go yearly. Time to get excel out lol.
As noted, RCI (and Buena vista trading company currently) are options resale or not. IMO, it's always good to have options but bad to pay extra for those options where DVC is concerned. It's also better to underbuy both in the resort choice and the number of points. Put practically, it's better to buy less points than more, buy SSR than BLT unless you know BLT is your main choice and have the experience to back that thought up (with stays there or CR) and do not buy extra points for non DVC options EVER.
