As another example, Cisco IT's network is arranged in the same way:  it
uses regional addressing and announces only a portion of its total
address space from various points of presence.

Some enterprises can get around this by using consistent vendors around
the globe; announcing more regional specifics with no-export provisions
and the larger block for export.  There are some important restrictions
using this model, but it does allow chunks to be sub-divided and
regionalized by the enterprise network.
