Quite so: UMD: Where will the old IP route after the 6 month period
is complete? Somewhere safe?
As I understand it (but ask UMD!)
- D-Root is currently numbered out of a general-purpose UMD /16 into a
dedicated, specifically-assigned /24
- the UMD /16 is not going anywhere
The announcement is that D-Root is being renumbered, not that UMD is
renumbering its whole network.
So, in short, UMD will still own the losing allocation, and be able to make
relatively sure nothing else is placed at that IP (though of course they
won't necessarily be able to make sure no one hijacks that entire prefix --
does Renesys have a pay-special-attention list?)
