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).
--vadim

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.
