Additionally, ARIN has placed 188.8.131.52/10 in its reserves in accordance
with the policy "Dedicated IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 Deployment" (NRPM
4.10). There have been no allocations made from this block as of yet,
however, once we do begin issuing from this block, the minimum allocation
size for this /10 will be a /28 and the maximum allocation size will be a
/24. You may wish to adjust any filters you have in place accordingly.
I know ARIN doesn't care about routability and all that, but good luck with
maybe these weren't meant to be used outside the local ASN? :)
I do wonder though what the purpose of this block is? If it's to be
used inside the local ASN (as seems to be indicated based upon minimum
allocation sizes) then why not use the IETF marked 100.64/10 space
instead? Global-uniqueness? ok, sure...
There will need to be popcorn though, for this event.
