One interpretation of "known isp" is having space reallocated (not
reassigned) to them via SWIP by an upstream.  Indeed this is usually
what startup isp's do today under v4 before they get an direct
assignment.    Wouldn't this work for the cases above?

If you are really that serious about having no v4 in this hypothetical
startup, what are you using for root dns glue?
