Re: Draft internic ip allocation doc

There is an easy solution -- do not allocate less than /16s.
This would relieve InterNIC from caring about IN-ADDRs
(and will do good things for routing, too).

And how will this help reduce routing entries caused by people
punching holes in existing and new CIDR blocks?

As I've argued elsewhere, in the end service providers *must* start
filtering something to protect their own infrastructure.  Why not
filter long prefixes if those prefixes were easy to determine?
Relying on the registries is just a delaying action that encourages
bad behavior.

Of course that violates the NIC charter as being the NIC of first and
last resort.

Big deal.
