I guess the policy is not that significant of issue given that ARIN
clearly makes exceptions for FTP and such.  Thank you for that
clarification.  Maybe ARIN would like to list these above mentioned
exceptions in their posted, written policy to save bandwidth in the
future.  Just a suggestion...

I would also suggest that ARIN look at other reasonable IP address
saving policies such as requiring NAT devices for companies providing
low end access (dial, ISDN, DSL, cable modems) to customers (i.e. one
Intenet IP address per access customer).
