I had thought I sent a link about a week ago re; a Nortel/MS joint
project initiated some years ago.  Isn't it entirely possible that
these addresses are already in use, and that MS is just making sure
this project continues without renumbering pain?

I see no reason to distrust ARIN public statements on this one, and
while I am a big fan of transparency, I doubt that most ARIN Members
would be comfortable giving their plans to their competition via ARIN
