Agreed. Still, address space not routed on the public Internet is a
logical place to start looking for abandoned or unused space to
reclaim. If the registrant responds that they are using that space for
a private internet and passes a Section 12 review, we thank them and
move on. If the registrant doesn't respond or their use doesn't pass a
review, Section 12 has procedures for that as well.
