For starters, NSI can determine easily how many multi-homes customers they
have.  Multi-homed customers *have* to get their allocations from ARIN, if
I'm reading the information on this list properly.  They also know how many
backbone providers there are.

If we don't know the customer base, we better damn well better find out
before we even think about how to organize the thing.
