Too many places likely have filters for longer than /24.  Trying to 
announce /29s, even with RIR blessing from a "special" /16 would likely be 
worse than getting the first allocation from 69/8.  I'm guessing a lot 

According to 
RIPE has 3 /8s worth of space in which the longest prefix given out is 
/29.  Are any of you accepting up to /29 in 193/8 and 194/7?
