I have not visited all of the RIPE web site or their
associate registries, but in the past some of those
registries claimed to serve the U.S.
Registries provide uniqueness....not routability...
Forcing ISPs to upstream providers did not teach
ISPs that the upstream provider is not really a
registry....it is about 90% provider 10% registry.
ISPs should be getting IP addresses from 100%
registries and then getting those routed by 100% providers.
Yes, the cost of getting a small block routed could
be high, especially on a per-IP address basis.
That encourages people to lease a larger block.
Somewhere in the equation is a balance point.
Let the market decide that point.
