Who 'allowed' you to announce the /19 when you had a /20 of it?

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

It is likely this was an allocation made under ARIN's multi-homed
policy in 1998.  In 1998, ARIN's minimum allocation size was a /19.
Organizations approved under the multi-homed policy, at that time,
were allocated a /20 and allowed to announce the /19.

In 1999, ARIN's minimum allocation size was reduced to a /20.
Organizations receiving allocations made under the multi-homed 
policy following this change are only allowed to announce the
/20.

In the spirit of full disclosure, we were being boneheads and using
addresses in the reserved space under the mistaken assumption that
since we were being allowed to advertise the whole /19, and 
had intent
to use it, and were going to ask for the other side, it was 
OK to use
that space. Not so.

It would have been nice if ARIN had dropped an automated note to the
effect of, "Hey, you've got x months to apply for this 
space before we
re-assign it."
