Actually further done in my email I think I deal with that, at 
least for my safety trigger and the automatic extension.  I 
reference NRPM and which is where the /8s 
for the RIR are reserved and handed out.   However, I didn't 
correct for that when basing the projected run on from mid-
2011, on picking the specfic dates.  


Does projection on, account for the new global 
policy: "End Policy for IANA IPv4 allocations to RIRs" and the 
last /8 that it reserves for each RIR?

Could you add that?  Or is the a different projection that 
accounts for that you can point me to?
