  It's ULA-C, basically.

  There are 4B /48s there.  
  Enough for several for each person now alive in the ARIN region.

  I would like RDNS (others may need it).
  I would like whois.
  I would be happy with the proxy-contact-address for these --- I have
numerous experiences with enterprises (not always after a merge!!!), where
things do not overlap, but suddendly, another set of previously
unknown rfc1918 addresses start to show up, and nobody knows from
  The overlapping case is actually less of a problem.

  I'm not sure I get what non-binding means here.

  However, realize that we basically can never get these addresses back.
My position might be... if you stop paying the fee, then the
registration information that was previously private, becomes public.

  I do not know why this is important.

  These are networks that can never appear in the DFZ.
  They may appear in various COINs, VPNs, enterprises, or personal-area
  64K subnets is enough for many, and anyone with that many routes (a
COIN or VPN with 256 sites of 256 subnets...) won't be very worried that
their second /48 does not aggregate with their first /48, I think.
