My company's current IPv4 space consists of 1 fixed /32 PA space outside 
the ARIN space. Not  a lot I know, but enough for a single NAT4 gateway 
and to be able to provide some inbound services too (mail, web, ssh, 
admin system etc,)

The people I provide consultancy for are similarly mostly outside of ARIN.

One day I or one my customers might (who can predict the future) start 
offering IPv6 migration services in the US (since the US seems to be 
lagging in this respect it could turn out to be good business.) Then 
we'd probably need some space for an IPv6  NAT64 DNS64 to IPv4 gateway.

The reason I'm reading this list is that ARIN's policy for the last few 
IPv4 blocks will also almost certainly have a direct knock on effect for 
me and my customers in Europe, Africa, and Asia Pacific.

I'm very grateful that the arin-ppml list is open to all.

I'm sure there are a lot more lurkers too.

Does that count?
