I don't think that this kind of solution is relevant or requires ARIN  
in any form.  I'd certainly vote against that.

And while I cede you the "creative thought" thing, it just returns to  
"imagination masturbation" in my mind.

The problem is *very* well known, and there ain't much we can do  
about it other than try to contain it until we can afford to upgrade  
all of our hardware to accept that many routes.  This problem isn't  
new, and I would rather avoid listening to newbies rethink an old  
problem (unless they are all willing to read 16+ years of arguement  
about this on this and other mailing lists before posting)
