I fully agree with that statement.  However, could somebody
please elucidate to me what ARIN's legal exposure is in giving
out a prefix longer than /19, when they know that *current* practice
will render it unrouted from many locations?

This sort of ties back to the straw man proposal I made a while
back re: /19's for multi-homed groups.  I saw one response to that,
and nothing further.  Are there any updates re: that?
