You can bet when people start paying for addresses there gonna be pretty
pissed when they aren't fully routable.
Ping sweeping will only give NSI/InterNIC a rough estimate of
current online use. A route could be down at the time of sweep on one
end, and on the other a single web box could be using 50 IPs. Changes
would deffinately be welcome in policy. Policing via an "are you awake"
really shouldn't be one of them.
BTW I am one of those that constantly has to scrounge for IP space.
