[ppml] Policy to help the little guys

  At this point, either of these would provide a better solution for my company.  Though the /29 would require segmenting some non-critical hosts to (presumably PA) other IP space.  A /28 would fit all that require external visibility.  So, I suppose the first complication would be whether our theoretical new /29 multihomed allocation had rules for justifying larger blocks...

as a gedanken experiment, and maintaining my reputation as a notorious trouble-maker, why not longer than /24?  e.g. take a /16 and create a well-known micro-swam of say /29s for multi-homed content sites.

i am not necessarily advocating this.  but i think the exercise of discussing the pros and cons might be good for us.
