Hey Michael,

I would like to understand what you mean 'you get routable address space'?  Surely this should mean 'potentially routable space' ?  As ARIN cannot guarantee the routability of any address space whatsoever.

In the RIPE NCC and APNIC allocation policies they clearly state that they do not guarantee routability of any allocation as they can't control what everyone out there on the internet does, nor control the routing policies of any LIR.
