actually I think ULA/ULA-C are not about routability (atleast not on
the public Internet) at all, they are about 'uniqueness' and a backup
plan when someone creates a 'unique' space that is the same as your
'unique' space... where that backup plan in ULA-C is: "I registered
this properly, go rechoose and this time register..."

I think the discussion of 'routability' just confuses the issue, which
is really 'uniqueness'.
