Interesting...  I believe that requests like these have been made before
in various forms (e.g. RFC1917/BCP 4) but if folks think that ARIN  
such a request is important, I expect it could be done quite easily.

While I agree that it is simple, elegant, and in keeping with the spirit
of "old Internet", is there any chance that the request will also be  
as "quaint" and/or perhaps "out of touch with reality"?  Would that  

(purely my arrangement of bits
  in ascii-like patterns)
