ARIN will make micro-allocations to critical infrastructure providers of
the Internet, including public exchange points, core DNS service
providers (e.g. ICANN-sanctioned root, gTLD, and ccTLD operators) as
well as the RIRs and IANA. [...]
Note that the root and ccTLD's are very slow changing. Countries
don't come and go that quickly. :)
I could potentially see a little concern in the gTLD space. ICANN
could add 5 every decade, or could add 200k next year. I think the
latter is unlikely, and thus the policy/defintion as it exists gives
me no pause.
I have no hard data on exchange point groth rates, but my gut tells
me that's a pretty darn low rate of growth as well.
