The cost of redesignating class E space is the cost of writing an
RFC, IANA editing a file, and IANA publishing that file on IANA's web
site. While the first bit may cost a bit of stomach lining and
sanity, I don't think anyone can call the cost anything but very low.
The cost of utilizing class E space will likely be significantly
higher. However, if you judge the cost of utilization high, don't
use it. That is, "Doctor, it hurts when I do this..."
