I saw in the meeting notes that an APNIC rep mentioned
that this was seldom used because renumbering seemed to
be a deterrent.
I think renumbering is a concern for legitamate users
of nets and they won't bother to use this policy. It's
the other guys who'd take advantage of this that worry me.
I don't see a way to make this better, it's a bad idea and
I believe the board should not ratify this one.
There's not enough good compared to the opportunity for abuse.
Is it assumed that if someone turned in non-contiguous
swamp nets, that they'd get a cidr from the swamp range?
In the example, where does the /22 come from, the swamp
or the current range, or is it ARIN's choice?
