Doesn't matter, neither did all the space Nortel released to Microsoft.

Yes. ARIN interprets "as a single aggregate" as modifying "amount the 
receiver can justify", not "the addresses received". We've been through

anyway, as the workaround just adds extra paperwork for everyone even if 
it is interpreted the other way.
