"PA" means "Provider Aggregatable," as in, "Assigned from a
provider's larger (aggregated) block."
"PI" means "Provider Independent," as in, "Not aggregated, can
be taken to other providers."

Inferring from the previous paragraphs. . . do you think
all address assignments should be directly from the RIR?

 You probably know this, but I like to repeat it from time
