Hi David,

No, using address space from the upstream is not a solution. Example 1, this
ISP has 2 or more upstream providers. Example 2, it has only a dozen of big
customers with big networks, can't risk depending on the addressing space of
the actual upstream (he may decide to change it later and will need to
renumber all the customers).
