As I read this: This means that the ARIN Micro allocation may
be more likely to be globally routeable than the UUnet Class C
multihomed Class C.... True / False?
If this is TRUE, then why would anyone not want to do this?

My block(s) is(are) now summarizeable again!!
AND IT makes it much easier to allow a Multihomer to
be a customer!

YES, we must make mistakes, but now let's learn from this one and
I would like to see the latest policy as it stands now...
I think that Micro-Allocations is something we MUST do..
Routing table- I think this issue is probrably null?
ISP involvement? I think Alec just hit it
has anyone here ever had to carve out a /24 from a /14 and then
re-define BGP networks to remove it?
This time savings for some high $$ network Eng
and on to a low $$ sales/cust care person.. hmmmm
Either way- adding an ASN to filter into an ASN should be easier
with the IP's coming from a non-ISP block!!!
YES / NO?
does this sway anyone's thoughts? or is it just bait?
