Taking off my AC hat, and putting on my "work in the engineering
group of a large backbone provider hat", I have yet to see a reason
to recomend to my employer to filter this block, and in fact see
several reasons to encourage the early, widespread use of this block
as it gets us and our customers out of paying fees.  Saving money
is something my management understands well, and I suspect there
are many other ISP's who would cooperate in order to save money as
well.

From a business case point of view getting out from under the
oppressive thumb of the registries who want to milk us each year
for thousands of dollars just to publish a whois record is a very
attractive proposition.
