[arin-discuss] Food for thought: IPv4 accountability.

If either Apple or HP  corporate network sits behind a NAT firewall, they do not need the address space you speak about, i.e. 40 million. In this regard may charging those type of entities for the address space they use, may result in them returning this address space to the allocation pool. This would be true for any other end user entity as well that uses a NAT type firewall

I think that the other ARIN RIR's do a better job of managing the actual
usage ratios.  Lots of US service providers have space allocated or
assigned to downstream customers and those customers don't exist any
more.

The cost for provider X to tightly manage their space is higher than the
cost of them just getting new space.  So it doesn't happen.  I could
give multiple specific examples, at the risk of putting a public spot
light on those providers. :|

I believe that the early end user entities that got gobs of space should
return the space they aren't using.   

Does Apple Computer really need a /8 ???  
Does HP really need a /8 ??

Do both of those entities really need 40 million+ IP addresses ??

For the specific issue of why Mr. Horwath can't get space, I don't know.
He fails to articulate specifics and only talks with a broad brush.

I do know the ARIN staff and they are reasonable people doing good work
under the guidelines they have.

If there is some injustice on Mr. Horwath's allocation request, I'm sure
it can be resolved.  

So to that end I'll offer a few minutes of my time to privately work
with him on his allocation request and see if it passes muster and what
may need to be done to help it float.
