	grousing about terms leads me to put my personal thoughts to
	phosphor (or LCD analog):

allocated:  Internet resources earmarked for specific use. period.
assigned:   an allocation is bound to a duely vetted party who agrees
	    to manage the allocation according to the "principles of
	    stewardship" (from the ARIN mission stmt)

	such an assignment is considered delegated when such allocations 
	and assignments are published - say via whois and DNS, perhaps 
	in an rdb.
