Cute :) Note the subject of the thread, little guys who want to
multihome have problems getting IP space from the NIC. The current
procedural mechanism for address allocation leads to a market failure,
"little guys" can't "justify" a /19. Under a market mechanism this
space would be available to them (for a price), under a market
mechanism it would be possible to route this (for a price).
Large ISPs would be able to get space and route it under either
mechanism (for a price).
Now where is my black helicopter :)
