@ Jim,
@ I think you mean 50 * /8?
@ Your idea suggests giving a fifth of IPv4 address space to the USA.
@ This on top of the addresses already used in the USA. Could you please tell
@ me which section of IPv4 you would then give to each other individual
@ country in the world? I think most countries will be happy with just one /8
@ instead of 50. I think Russia would need much more, China maybe one /8 per 
@ province?  Where are they going to come from, which range? 
@ Are there less than 206 other countries? My geography isn't that good:-)
@ Are you going to explain to the present users why they must give the
@ addresses they use to a country?
@ Maybe this is possible with IPv8 (IPvJim:-), with IPv4 I think it isn't
@ plausible.
@ Kind regards,
@ John Crain
@ (These opinions are my personal opinions, you want some get your own)

Could you replace the word "give" with....

	"place under management"


Registries manage blocks...

As people have noted, they do not own them.

We will talk about ownership soon. Very soon.
I hope people have studied prior art, as opposed
to what happened in the IAHC discussions.
