We have been assigning /29's and /30's to a LOT of fairly substantial
business entities on faster than 128K connections. Firewalls, Proxies
and 'cable/dsl routers'. Fract T1, T1 and Wireless. These are the same
entities that a few years ago would have demanded a /24 (C). Them being
paranoid about live IP's on the 'net may be a good thing. :)
