I have sadly witnessed a growing number of businesses with /24s
moving to colocation/aws networks and not giving up their unused
network space. I assume this will come into play soon.
A couple of /24s being returned wouldn't make a significant difference
when it comes to IPv4 depletion. Heck, not even a couple of /8s would.
Trying to reclaim and redistribute unused space would be a tremendous
waste of effort.
I have already read the news of blackmarket sales of network
allocations in Europe.
Interesting. Do you have a link or some other kind of reference?
