I was thinking the same thing. I know of many installations where 1/8 has been used internally. Technically, they're mostly all "mainframe" installations that are never supposed to be connected to the internet, but they're accessed by machines that are. (that are already using private IPv4 space.)

But it's not all bad. It's assigned to APNIC, so a lot of people will gladly continue blocking it.
