Best of luck with that strategy. I think this ignores the growing IPv4 demand that will be coming from your business customers and assumes that your residential customers are all that you have to stack onto these addresses.

The residential currently eats up a majority of my addresses, so the more I can recover from them for business customers, the better.

Telling a customer to reboot a router (or a single host) isn't all that bad. After all, they probably did that at least 5 times at the behest of your front-line support folks before they reached someone that understood the problem anyway. (At least that's been my general experience with most residential providers).

Perhaps my viewpoint is different, given that I only have two lines of support folk, and talking to me is a rarity for a customer. :)

Or 7, as required by CALEA. The problem with draft-donely is that customers that exceed the expected number of ports run into issues (or additional logging required), so you either don't get the best efficiency out of your addresses, or you get problems in other ways. Owen

That problem was mentioned on v6ops, and the general lesson that I took from it is to not exceed 16:1 ratio if it can be helped. 4k ports should be fine. 64:1 is probably sustainable for a lot of customers with 1k ports, but there will be a percentage that will have issues. Luckily, most of those with issues are usually running services that require opt-out anyways.

If I calculate correctly, even at 20% of my residential(70% of total allocated) on CGN, I'm regaining 18% of my residential assignments with a 16:1 ratio. I could conservatively figure a years worth of my usual allocation has been saved. If I can push better numbers, I'll get more years.
