ARIN, at least to us, has been clear on not announcing what isn't


ARIN's former policy (in effect in 10/98 when we applied,) was that
when requesting a /19 as an initial allocation, you would be
assigned a /20, but the whole /19 would be reserved for future
use, providing you could demonstrate need within either 12 or 18
months (I don't recall exactly).

As part of that previous policy, you were allowed to announce the entire
reserved /19, which we did.

In the intervening years, ARIN has changed its policies so that initial
allocations are a /20.
