That depends on how you see their "demontrated need." The way I look at it, if you build your network squatting on someone elses addresses, that's a problem of your own making and does not equate to any "immediate need" on my (channeling ARIN) part. This is a mess they created for themselves and should have known was going to bite them in the ass sooner than later. Translation: they should have started working to resolve this a long time ago. (or never done it in the first place.)

And if I may say, they've demonstrated no need at all for public address space. They simply need to stop using 5/8 as if it were 10/8 -- i.e. they need more private address space. They don't need *public* IPv4 space for that. They will need to re-engineer their network to handle the addressing overlaps (ala NAT444.)
