Hi Florian, others,
 
| You should move 192.88.99.0/24 from SPECIAL to YES (although you
| shouldn't see source addresses from that prefix, no matter what the
| folks at bit.nl think).  169.254.0.0/16 should be NO (otherwise it
| wouldn't be link-local).
Hi, here's a member of 'the folks at bit.nl'.  Just a quick note to
say that we have been sourcing IPv4 packets from 192.88.99.1 at a rate
of 2.000 to 10.000 packets per second since early 2003, so I'm guessing 
we have sent some 750.000 billion packets by now. I have accounted 
for some 850.000 IPv4 addresses speaking to and from our 6to4 relay in
Q4/2005 alone, so one might argue that there are the proverbial
"One Million people can't be wrong".

Groet,
Pim (keeping the myth alive!)
