Martin, I know you are clueful.    So I'm assuming that this response  
can't possibly be what it means on its face.

Can you name a large service provider in the ARIN region who doesn't  
have miles and miles (on any yardstick of your choice) of extra  
lenient space they are paying nothing for?    That the people who have  
gotten the most for free are afraid that they might lose some of that  
advantage isn't surprising.

That this could be seen as a Bad Thing surprises me.

And let's be honest, they might at most lose some miniscule amount of  
their advantage.  They certainly won't lose even 1/100th of their  
advantage, and certainly never even come close to a level playing  
field.  What do they really have to lose?   And why do you express  
this as a bad thing?
