Please forgive my ignorance here.
But after the dot-bomb shouldn't a large number of ASN's
now be unused?  and not just that, what about the 
mergers? uunet alternet worldcom etc...
When looking at the netatlantis.org site, I seem to 
see large gaps..

Should we not be considering ASN reclamation?

just a thought...
