188.8.131.52/24 was once held by a small consulting company. if that were
still the case, i would not feel that that consulting company's ability
to multihome was worth a slot in every routing table on every router on
the internet, given how globally expensive that has turned out to be.
(the block was later used for a root name server, and then, later, given
into the control of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit who operates that server, and
for that, i think the community of router owners would say it's worth a
routing slot... i'm just saying if that hadn't happened, i'd've stopped
using the space by now, on a "think globally, act locally" basis.)
