I don't have any particular interest in the outcome but with all due
respect you don't have any idea how they intend to utilize them, and
address space utilization on the basis of employee count is specious
enough to be discarded out of hand. It's obvious that you've never been
a customer of microsoft's hosting platform or their SOAS business if the
only possible conclusion you can draw is that they're going into the LIR
