Hi Folks,

Yesteryear's attempt to restrain the mess the IPv4 BGP table has
become by setting RIR minimums to /19 or /20 within particular /8's
utterly failed, largely because small multihomed end users had no
choice but to get /24's from their ISP -- in the middle of the
restricted /8's. Though late in the day, proposal 2010-2 largely
corrects this grave mistake for new assignments -without- expanding
who can introduce BGP routes into the table or how many IP addresses
anyone qualifies for. It is a major step forward and I strongly
encourage you to stand in support of it at the ARIN meeting next
