Thanks Bill....
Yes.. I agree with the holding off..
Also-- Could someone correct me where I stated in the last post IRT the ISP contract requirements as a Multihoming request verification from ARIN?
I think that would help put James at ease....

I'm waiting for the update to the text that Owen promised to close a
hole in the language that could cause the renumbering and return of
blocks much larger than /20.

Hi James,

If you're willing to lie, it's not hard to justify a /22. That's
fraud, however, so if you're found out you could be very suddenly
without the IP addresses critical to your business. High risk for an
insufficient reward.

Operationally, it just hasn't been a problem.

If it does become a problem, ARIN can trivially address it outside of
the policy framework. They need only implement a SWIP-like framework
in which each AS providing you with BGP service submits a template
declaring their AS and your ORG.

Right now, though, that would be a lot of work to implement a
precaution that does not appear necessary.
