I support this research and encourage ARIN to make appropriate allocations for it
from the pool in question, record them appropriately in WHOIS and not issue them
to any other registrants during the period of the experiment.

The allocations to RIPE should be conditional on the ability to revoke them within
48 hours should urgent need to use them as intended arise during the experiment.

I presume that RIPE can be sufficiently cooperative as to not need a down period
for “cleaning” the address prior to reuse.
