Agree, but actually I was wondering, if the AC/board has the power so just
modify the policy in order to use ULA-C space, assuming that when the ULA-C
becomes available, it offers the same features required by this policy. It
may be much easier and faster instead of going thru the PDP all the way. Or
even the staff, because this becomes then only an implementation issue (kind
of "we usedd prefix xx until now, but ULA-C is available and we can use that
space w/o implications on the existing policy itself, same as if we exhaust
the initial prefix for this policy and need to start using a new one").
Anyway is something that could be debated when ULA-C is available :-)
