When I said common pool I was referring to a common block of address 
that both Internet connected and non-connected assignments would be 
made.  Such that it would not be possible to filter the non-connected 

Or the other option is to have a block dedicated to non-connected 
assignments that could be filtered.

There is nothing regional about it, they would be globally unique.
