Actually it wasn't a policy mistake.  There had been a trial with subnets of
"class A"s.  They seemed to work but our network reached out to lots and
lots more destinations by the sheer volume of our customers.  So we had to
pretty much fix the problem at thousands of little end sites.  Also we had
no control over (and neither does ARIN) the filtering policies of large
ISPs.
