recipients of these public resources to justify their need, no matter
whether these resources are coming from a central pool or a private
transfer.

I just wrote a page of explanation and deleted it.

If I have to explain it, you would not understand. And you do not
understand today's data networks at all. I feel bad and outrageous saying
that. But, given hundreds of millions of mobile phone users behind cgn
today, perhaps your question is outrageous

Note that att and vz have both rolled cgn to their dsl subs.

Yet arin is not exhausted.

Interesting?
