I'm not saying we should reuse the old swamp space for a new "multihome 
swamp".  I'm saying set aside a new previously unused block of addresses 
from the old Class C range to be assigned directly to small organizations 
that multihome, which is basically what 2002-7 is suggesting.

I'm definitely in favor of cleaning up the existing swamp space however, 
get any organization that still uses space in the swamp to renumber into 
their provider's larger aggregate and give the space back.  I think this 
is basically what 2002-6 is attempting to encourage.  The only way you're 
going to get people to renumber out of the swamp is to offer some sort of 
incentive to do so (money), or just plain force them to do it.
