I am neutral on this one.  The argument I see is that once that /10 is
set aside for that purpose, you have no control that it is actually used
for that purpose.  It will become de facto 1918 space and people will
use it in all sorts of places and you run into exactly the problem this
/10 was meant to solve (resolving collisions between customer 1918
domains) when you start running into customer nets numbered in this /10
or nets in regions outside ARIN numbered in this range.
