I think I agree with Chris on this, I'm not sure it is worth going back
and producing new data. The crux of the argument to expand the
reservation isn't that we think the current /16 reservation wasn't large
enough based on historical usage. Between EPs and DNS there is less
that 1.5 /16s of CI allocated currently. So from a historical point of
view a /16 seems like plenty.
However, the crux of the argument to expand the reservation is that the
potential new TLDs ICANN is talking about could create unprecedented
demand for CI allocations right at the time we may be out of IPv4. So,
while such data probably would be nice, it would neither support or
refute the crux of the argument regarding this policy, in my opinion.
