In this case, CI is likely representing commercial Internet Exchanges (IX).
Right now, I believe that EP.NET is provisioning addrs to exchanges. I am
guessing that this is a policy to insure continuity in any sort of exchange
of those particular addresses blocks, so as to not disrupt IX operations. I
don't think this is any sort of CI allocation issue, related to micro
allocation policy for example.
