No data, but I thought I should add...RFC 3330 "Special-Use IPv4 Addresses" lists the "obvious stuff." I just went through an exercise in de-bogonizing and needed that reference. [http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3330.txt]

Be careful though. It lists 24.0.0.0/8 as "special," explaining that this went to cable operators (and eventually administered via ARIN). So don't just use the Summary Table in section 3 blindly.

For those doing similar exercise, you might want to look at rephrased version of rfc330 listed blocks:
